I think that makes a lot of sense, Dave.

So +1 to what you suggest.

However, in the interests of actually *getting* our asses in gear, I'd
like to add the condition that it be for a 3 month period only, ending
31st Jan: NewWEO goes live on 1st Feb. That being the case, if it would
be helpful to Jeff's cashflow, we could probably pay up front.

We should probably have a review in mid-Jan to check that we're going to
make it, and extend as necessary, but that should be an *explicit*

This means that we won't have an open-ended situation that is never ending
because we don't do anything about it.
