I'd like to see SqF have a decent supply of money so that it can
actually _do_ things. Things like offer help to students to get to
OOPSLA or SqueakEnds, run an active website (even though Cees is
providing the machine support, it really needs a lot of work to keep a
website vital and that will usually require some money), pay me a decent
salary, have a nice display at suitable conferences/shows, etc.

Even, with a _large_ amount of money, actually be the body employing
Alan et al. Remember, Disney is no longer providing the money to support
the core group of people whose full time effort has produced a
significant fraction of this delightful artifact we all enjoy.

This is very curious ... as if someone was eating the wrong sort of
mushrooms when they invented this sort of thing
