oh, you want to donate and pay us for our spare time, so we can think 
about "security policies" and "levels of services", and especially 
response-times for you. I'm thinking of a "special service level", what do 
you think about 1-2 hours as response time? Is this quick enough for you?
Ant we need more staff to monitor your wishes, and of course more hardware to 
create and maintain databases for such issues...

If you want to be sure, please don't use our packages...
That's great! Awesome, best question ever heard....

Thx, you made my day :)
