Speaking of which, if any board members are necessary just to fill in the
ranks and occasionally actively participate in the decision making process,
then I also volunteer to be a board member. Being a contributing member, I'm
regularly around to do stuff, but I didn't submit a formal nomination
because I not actually _terribly_ interested in the SPI board business, and
because I think such work should be distributed to more suitable people.

But then, I see now that not much is happenning, not many more suitable
people are volunteering...
