For the record, I'm in favour of this approach. There is no real
benefit in setting up a foundation structure which will just be a
fundraising structure, causing some people lots of work and cost,
when there is an organisation prepared to partner us which
already has all of this in place.

Of course, that does mean that we will be taking a small piece of a
bigger pie, rather than having our own independent revenue
source, but since we currently have no revenue source, that won't
make a big difference.
