lol.  Well, I wouldn't necessarily describe myself as specific
advocate for Bitcoin-- I don't know enough about it.
The 'we' refers more to the Wikimedians who are excited about the
theoretical potential of Bitcoin as a tool for us.   If the 'we'
refers to generic Bitcoin advocates...   well, they're a more diverse
and probably much wilder bunch than those of us here who were vaguely
and generally giddy about something somewhat bitcoinish.
