Ad hoc decisions by an appointed committee that is reactive to 
indiosyncratic proposals seems somewhat unethical.  Perhaps I am wrong, 
but wouldn't it be better if there were a document clearly specifying 
spending priorities that was relatively accepted by consensus of a broad 
group of pg'ers, and that an opportunity to qualify for these monies 
could be promulgated to the broader group?
