Amazing! The 3rd Kickstarterproject I saw in the last few weeks that 
reached a sum by far beyond its initial goal!

I gave a humble donation to KDEnlive refactoring, that went over the top 
as well and Laura Palmer beats everything I have seen so far:


more than 6 (!!) times the initial goal of 100K (...)

There is hope out there indeed....
