[CoLoCo] new t-shirt / help idea

I'm not suggesting any particular version. I'm only asking would
something like t-shirt advertising be something worth looking into? If
someone asks and you say I'll help you by installing Ubuntu (probably
dual boot) you will decide at that time what's best. My guess is that
we would want to install the latest edition. LTS isn't overly
important on the desktop. How many of us are still running dapper or
even edgy. By the end of the month most of us will be on Gutsy. Many
already are.

What I'm asking is how willing would members be to walk around town
with big letters on your back saying "free computer help" or similar?
I think we would find a few willing converts from time to time.
