Fine with me.  It does greatly improve the chances of completion.

Given the Gerber PhotoPlot files, there are many places that
could "do a run".  Given blank boards, there are many places
that can "stuff".  I may be interested in stuffing a few boards
here.  Even with 0.5 mm pitch pqfp.

This would be important to maintaining the spirit in which
this group was created.

Good for us, good for you.
