Just to be perfectly clear, I am not proposing that we amend the Bylaws to
set the number of Directors at 5 for all time. Instead, I am proposing
that we set the number at 5 for the purposes of the upcoming election, in
accordance with the Bylaws statement that this number shall be "determined
from time to time by the Members of the Corporation".

I didn't want anyone to get the wrong impression. :)
