Justin,

Thanks your quick response and the additional insight.

I am surprised that even in Apache.org "Red Tape" appears to have priority over
security (I am sure the authorities don't complain if you accept my money now
and do the paper-work/proper accounting end of year - maybe you want to set-up a
private project "FundAdmin" in this bugzilla and record such a todo in there -
see RFE http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=193658).

Anyway - the money is on the way to you.

The requested patch - is above. For it to make sense, please see 
http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=17119. I hope this would
be more professional and feasible than your "411-3am" nightmare scenario.
Especially your institution Irvine could certainly agree that you answering
your office phone a few times a week to read a fingerprint is in line 
with its (and your research grant's) mission.
Similarly, I would expect this to be acceptable for William's firm Covalent too.
I would be more than happy if it really turns out that Sanders is getting
inundated with such phone calls (then the world is better than I think it is).
If so, I am happy to sponsor him an extra phone line and an answering machine
for a year!

Rgds  Ralf
