Probably the only time we're going to run into snags or roadblocks is when 
the Art Team approaches its critical mass. It's quite easy to get 15 
dedicated people to readily come to consensus on an issue than it is 50 
semi-involved people. I completely agree with Aaron (who I am hereby dubbing 
Aaron #1) on the thought that the general temperament of the Ubuntu 
community should suffice in place of an organizational structure for now.
