* When we move to the click-through CLA, would we be able to force the
9300 users to click-through?
* Would we want to? That would encourage people to agree to something
without knowing about it.
* So, if we are never going to push a click-through on those accounts,
they will have to be re-created anyway for a user to actually gain edit
* However, many people probably signed up thinking they could edit, then
