I think it would be kind of cool to send people a t-shirt from time to
time for doing something neat, but I'm a bit worried that it might turn
into a big argument over who "deserves" one, which would make me horribly
depressed and annoyed. It might be better to keep this to individual
actions to avoid the morale-destroying fights over who should be rewarded
by the project as a whole.
