[SLED] New directions for the SLED Picayune ???

A digest would be a HUGE help and invaluable!  However, a good job  
takes talent and time - both of which should be paid for in my  
opinion.  How would people feel about subscriptions that would  
underwrite the time of a talented dedicated editor?

It's just a thought - It takes me hours each week to digest the SLED.  
Personally, I would sacrifice coffee money to free up some of that  
time and know I wasn't missing important developments, conversations  
and information.

Just my own opinion :-)
