As to the question of the maximum percentage of members from any one
company, I think we'll deal with that as needed -- if the number of
members drops enough that now a certain company is above the threshold
(right now that company would be Jabber Inc., but in the future it could
some other company), we'll simply contact that company and ask them to
have one or two of their members resign. Them's the breaks. :)
