Here's another crazy idea on those lines then: how about having SFC fund 
sourceware overseers' time on TAC (in addition to, perhaps consulting 
tasks like independent security audits so that we have more eyes on the 
infrastructure) so that we continue to have them involved in the 
technical direction of GNU toolchain infrastructure?  That is of course 
for overseers who are actually able to accept payments from the SFC for 
such involvement.
