I had an extremely rough guess at what I thought the current balance may
be, after having made no inquiries with people who would know better.  I
thought the repeated disclaimers would be enough to make this clear, but
I guess not. :\

To make it even more clear: that was a guess.  If other people who have
actually been handling money (or attending meetings, etc) think it's
wrong, then I would assume they're correct.  Don't read anything more
into what I've said than sheer guesswork and rough
off-the-top-of-my-head-at-2am-after-staring-at-Xlib estimates.

Oh well, I tried.
