Heh, quite. I didn't claim to have logic on my side, I was just highlighting 
what our byelaws currently say.

I said it was picky, but if we're happy for Devs to sponsor TU-ship, then we 
should just change the rules. I didn't want to create a big discussion out of 
this (unless of course people do disagree with devs being sponsors), so if 
there aren't any reasons contra, I'll put in a proposal to amend the byelaws. 
I guess this came from an original idea that the group of TUs are self-
governing, independently of the developers.
