I'll match you for $15 too. :-)
There's another anonymous person who said they'd donate also, so that is
$10 each. However, I don't know who the person is who runs voltaire.

I've CC'd this to debian-admin in the hopes that they can tell us where to
mail RAM so that it is installed in voltaire. 

Being in Germany, this clause on the the dealram.com website rules me out
from ordering it: "We can not accept credit cards that bill outside of the
US, it's posessions or Canada". However, if either of you guys are
Americans, I would be happy mail you a 10EUR bill. =)

( Assuming that voltaire is situated in the States )

I am a debian maintainer, and the primary author of MLton, Stephen Weeks, 
is also. That said, having you build it would not be that helpful; I can 
do that myself. The main point is that the package should be automatically 
rebuilt when there are new releases. Automatic rebuilds happen on voltaire.

Besides, putting more RAM in voltaire benefits all debian PowerPC builds.
Futhermore, if SML ever takes off, there will be several packages to build.
