I don't think this much exposure and/or funds is/are really needed here.
The proposed port, especially after Dan's commits, is already
functional. The local access is missing. I bet if anybody with knowledge
what to do offers a bit of advice how to solve it, it will be solved in
no time. I'd say this is more about know-how than funds.
