On this, I think it would be useful to do some project scoping - not
just around membership, but around all of the web-based systems we are
thining of upgrading. I know there's also been talk of a zookeepr
upgrade/rewrite. There are also probably other needs we should be
considering: other LA events, potential lobbying/other LA activities,
grants, Mailman 3 integration, Hurd compatibility etc etc etc.

The first step here would be wishlisting *everything*, and then
scoping it down into actual projects, then commencing work. Strategic
planning, yo.
