I just applied to set up and run an XO lending library in Austin

yop, crazy as charged...

Anyway, I'd appreciate your feedback, and especially figure out the good 
answer to these questions

* how to keep the XOs safe
(so far I would go for references, FOAFs - lacking that, some extreme 
case would involve some escrow setup)

* how to keep this away from sucking all the time and resources of 
people running it.
(I see having a 'mandatory donation' a possibility, or maybe outright 
charging a fee? a service will be provided...)

* other Austin Pecans to help run this

Ultimately some people could borrow a few, and then locally run their 
own "branch", dunno, many ideas
