Actually, it does happen. After a crowdmatch at this level, you will "owe" the project 0.5 cents. You just won't be charged. In fact, you'll never be charged fractions of a cent. 0.5 is a really depressing number, but note that this would also be true for a crowdmatch of $4.128. Especially if the previous month was $1.023. After those two months, you would owe 4.128 + 1.023 = $5.151, and you would be charged $5.15 (plus fees). In other words, you crowdmatch those fractions of a cent, and they carry over. Of course, we're talking about the difference between $5.14 and $5.15 (shock!), but I don't think we need to change how it works. This really does match every last person.
