My logic is correct; apparently my understanding of the goals of the 
Debian project is not.  I always thought it was first and foremost for 
the devs themselves ("we don't care if anybody uses it but us").  Under 
that reasoning, I'd think you'd *want* to spend money to have the best 
for yourselves.  The second and lesser reason is as a benefit for 
society -- thus the comparision to the orgs you say are not like Debian 
at all.

But primarily I would have thought you'd really want to have the best 
environment in the world.  I'm not saying you don't want that, I just 
didn't realize $30 would be a showstopper, especially since as you say 
you are already contributing so much.

But that's just me.

Um, yeah.  Take a bath.
