That said, let's figure out how much it would cost to provide it for a year, not a ballpark guestimate but an actual figure that can be acted upon, then set up the kickstarter, and the folks that want it can either cover the cost or hold their peace. Let the battlecry go forth: give the people what they want (if they can demonstrate they really want it).
That's not for a year; it's a three-year contract commitment, so we'd need to raise funds for the full duration. We could achieve this if under one in ten customers were to commit $5/mo, or $180 total for 36 months.
I wonder if there is really that much interest.
