I appreciate your enthusiasm, and there's every chance that we will take up
both your offers. However, our experience shows that 'more' does not always
mean 'better'. Don't be disappointed though -- that's just the gut reaction
you're going to get from the team straight away.

That said, there is work going on at the moment to improve the mechanism of
creating and approving accounts, which will allow us to parallelise the easy
bit. The hard bit, as always, is social. Often, it takes way longer to get
confirmations from peers than it does to create accounts and so on.
