[Darkroom] Darkroom status update?

Seems like labor is the biggest shortage lately.  Money was certainly coming
in at a close second, but having Rubin as non-corporeal check signer
alleviates that.  Perhaps it's time to rely on the tried and true services
for funds paradigm?  I think that it would be nice to find someone from
within the ranks who will work for really cheap--though not for free.  The
nice thing about paying people is that then you can tell them when to get
things done.  It seems like amongst ourselves, it might be a while until our
aggregated free time results in a completed darkroom.  So maybe we post
first to discuss?

If I get a second from a non-Rubin person who will help me coordinate this
shite, I'll start shopping around.  (ahem, Ben?)
