Okay, I'll patch it in later today (about to go out).

Fair enough, just wanted it on record.

Oh I see.
The disadvantages are such:
1. Elections have to be held, and have to be project-wide.
This is slow, and requires decent amounts of effort.
Thankfully, with how we have it set up, it only happens once a year, and
is thus acceptable.
2. If the project is compromised (most project members do not have the
project's best interests in mind), after 3 years the protection
abilities of base also become compromised.
However, if the project is compromised, it's effectively already dead,
this only accelerates that.
