Normal overhead costs were budgeted into the grant from the beginning. 
That's one of the reasons we're not using it to hire 30 developers at 
$30,000 a year, but setting more realistic goals for it. While I can't 
say exactly offhand what the accounting mechanics will be, the lease 
should have no negative effect, either on our ability to execute the 
usability grant as intended, or on the use of unrestricted donations for 
the normal purposes of the foundation.
