My only memory of working significantly with Nathan is as an archive
administrator processing his sync requests; however, they generally
seemed to be better-formed than average (to the extent that I noticed
his name and generally prioritised dealing with his syncs if I was too
short on time to process the whole queue) and I don't recall having any
problems with them.

(If I've forgotten an instance of more direct sponsorship, then my
apologies, and please remind me!)
