I have been dying for a maveric149 at wikipedia.org (or .com if .org is not 
possible; grumble, .com, grumble) email address for months now. 

Jimbo, Lee et al. is this possible? I currently pay Yahoo! 30 bucks US a year 
for my email account - I would much rather have that money go to the project 
instead (If Jimbo doesn't need it to pay for current expenses then it can sit 
in a savings account for the future non-profit Wikipedia Foundation). 

Then again we might want to hold off on this idea until the non-profit is 
set-up. Then Wikipedia email accounts would be one of the member privileges 
for contributing ($) members of the non-profit.
