Perhaps a more useful measure is to look at the differentiation in the WMF
budget between what is considered "core" and what is approved by the FDC.
How much is that "core" amount (for this year, at least) and how large
would an endowment would be needed to pay for the maintenance and probable
steady growth of that amount?
