Hrm, I can't find one (at least which uses the word 'collateral') so
I'm creating a new list here:

Unfortunately I seem to have deleted my best notes on what collateral
is needed, so others might want to fill that in some more.

is unchanged. More eyes are good.]

The box discussion is here:

We can put up several thousand bucks to fill such a box on a one-time
basis, but the big killer will be the cost of shipping and insurance.
Someone should look into the cost of shipping a large, heavy box with
~$2K worth of electronics in it from (say) France to Germany, Germany
to the US, etc.; (or maybe we need three boxes, one for the US/Canada,
one for Europe, one for Latin America.) If we know the annual cost of
shipping the thing around, then we'll know if going ahead and doing
the rest of the box on this scale is practical.
