This seems like a good idea to me.  This would also make a great handout.  
Maybe we should start this "101 things" page on the wiki, work on it for a 
while, and then when it's baked, we turn it into pretty collateral.  I can

The biggest blocker here, honestly, is a treasurer.  We could set up a 
Cafe Press store in 15 minutes; the real issue is, who handles the money?  
This is one of the upcoming issues to be resolved by the Foundation, but 
once we're there, I think that this item moves right to the top.

Is this spokesperson a member of the LUG, or not?
