Sounds good, thanks for writing up the SFC perspective. The reasons for 
staying with TPF essentially boil down to:

- The SFC application process is 9 months of work by someone, and that 
time might be better spent on development work or community 

- At either SFC or TPF, Parrot would have a committee (drawn from the 
Parrot community) responsible for managing Parrot-specific details, 
while benefiting from the established larger organization to handle 
broader legal/accounting details. So, SFC would provide exactly what TPF 
provides, and we'd just be trading equal for equal.

I think SFC is a good organization. But, since Parrot's greatest 
obstacle at the moment is available volunteer time, moving to SFC seems 
like a waste of limited resources.
