There is a big problem with this idea, in that the SOB currently
number 7. Having an odd number is very good, because it means you
can't have a deadlocked vote (barring abstentions). With an empty
seat, we don't have that guarantee.

I do like having an "in memoriam" release, or dedication, or something.

I may not have interacted much with Andreas, but I read every single
one of his mails. When he erred in his dealings with others, he
apologised. Aside from all the other great things he was, this ranks
highly in my own list of admired traits.
