That sounds like something that *might* work, but I'd be very wary of
committing to anything without a detailed proposal. What would be your
expectation of cost, for example? 

I've also had it suggested that we could/should pay for similar
evaluations for government usage around the world, but that can get
*very* expensive with no guarantee of any benefit at all.

I'll admit that I also have misgivings about just passing on to third
parties the money that donors have chosen to give to *us*. I'd rather
investigate other avenues to use the money directly within Debian, to
be frank.
