You need to do a lot of outreach (sales & mktg) to people beyond the
net, because you can't move money over the net yet.

(I expect and hope and pray that this will be fixed within a year or three --
if I wasn't busy with Cygnus, I'd probably be making it happen.  Then
it'll be possible to charge for support and distribution services performed
over the net, in a low overhead way for both the supplier and the customer.)
