Considering that SPI has some reserves now, why don't we try this
process out before changing how SPI has traditionally collected

If the procedure works, and there are people willing to use it and drive
it, great. That would be an appropriate time to change the donation
procedure or at least suggest that people donate directly to SPI because
it is funding appropriate projects with community oversight.

If it doesn't, then we haven't built up a pool of money which has no
clear purpose.

Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or
daring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But
the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer
to achieve immortality by not dying.
