by the way,
some years ago (5?), the Switzerland government 
has contributed to the WSIS a huge amount of 
money, including for civil society participation. 
We got information about that from Jonathan 
Robin, and that's how we got involved at the 
Bucharest PrepCom meeting. Perhaps the fact that 
today governments contribute much less, and they 
seem not to be interested in contributing, should 
give us some idea what's their position on IG is?
