I actually use up most of my "spare cycles" on other projects, mainly
either work-related or in the service of keeping my stress levels down
far enough to remain relatively sane. Of what's left, the unfortunate
reality is that it takes far less to engage in a discussion like this
one than it would to make any difference at all in a project of the type
being suggested.

Which is not to say I'd be entirely opposed to taking part in such a
project, by any means - just that I wouldn't be able to commit to
anything, especially not for the long term, unless and/or until I can
get some of my other things out of the way.
