I think running it ourselves from scratch, as it were, would be orders
of magnitude more work than I had in mind. The advantage I see with
RedBubble is that it appears - so far at least - to require minimal
setup on our part.

On that topic, if I do go ahead and set this up, does the ComDev PMC
have any objection to me doing it in ComDev's name?
