A few reasons:
1) ASL controls the funds, not us.
2) I doubt we reported the income to the IRS in 2004, so we don't want to
claim it now;
3) Putting it on our books would complicate life (we'd have to account for
it and file special forms for money held outside the US) without providing
any benefit I can figure out.
