And initial "angel" funding (in the $25k-$75k range) to get such a
bootstrap off the ground is *easy* to find... the question is "what
you do with it" and "how do you be sure you grow at least enough to
keep going at least hand-to-mouth after that"... 

One of mekinok's meta-goals was to take "piss away money+time on
infrastructure" out of the list of likely mistakes for efforts on that
scale :-)
