It tries to give:
- more momentum to the leadership: clearly a single leader is swamped with
  administrivia and even the addition of a 2IC didn't let Anthony finish
  his first proposal (about giving single-package upload rights to some
  people which don't want to become full DD but want to maintain just one
  or two packages)
- better decision taking: when you have a big discussion, it's difficult to take a
  decison alone, you take the sole responsibility of it... whereas when
  you're 10 which are deciding, it's easier to assume the outcome.
- better respect of the leadership: if you don't like the leader, it's
  easy to dismiss any of its decision, but if you have 6 people in the
  board that you respect and 4 that you don't trust too much, you're more
  likely to accept the outcome of a given decision.

It's also a form of leadership that fits better our own internal workings.
If a board member goes MIA, we still have 9 others who are there.
