[cut very interesting improvement propositions]

My interior forum is still out (since a couple of tens of years) about what is 
my attitude towards humanity's major socio-economical systems (and tending to 
disapprove all of them :-). In the mean time, I believe money is the worst 
necessary notion that happened to this iteration of Universe.

Still, I find the below proposal very attractive and elegant. There's the ugly 
danger of political disputes emerging at the moment of choosing what's a 
worthy donation cause. But if we're mature enough to sort this out, the 
project as a whole would gain a new, powerful meaning of its already richly 
justified existence.

Thanks Don, for a great reading.
