I will grant that the addition of APAC representatives must surely
make the task a little more difficult but let's not throw up our hands
and think it insurmountable because once there was a failure on
FAmSCo's part to accommodate all members to everyone's satisfaction.
And there is really no timezone situation that explains only one
single new member of FAmSCo appearing at its first meeting.
