I agree that extra roundtrips are painful, and that may put off

However as much as "doing useful work" is always going to be good for
the project, we can't impose that on people, and I think it's unfair on
Simon to criticize him for not going the extra mile given that he's
seemingly one of the few who are going any miles at all right now.

Given that we're so short of sponsors processing the sponsorship queue
at all right now, I don't think it's appropriate to ask sponsors to be
doing any more than they are already.

On the other hand, if someone wants to volunteer to sort out the
paperwork, that's always appreciated :-)
