Ivan,

please don't take this the wrong way. This was supposed to be a reward for
what you have ALREADY DONE. It's not a "we'll have to give him more RAM so
he can compile KDE even faster" sort of thing.

So don't (!!!) try to feel even more obligated to kill your free time to
work on KDE.  We're happy with how you did it in the past. That's why we
did this!

(Actually, I'd never have thought this idea would explode like it did. ;)

I'll have to leave this to the US citizens among us, I don't know R.E.I.

I'd say this gets my vote. That way not only you can understand how
appreciated your works is here. ;)
