I know it would complicate things but maybe some sort of point system for the rare stuff.

Some of my thoughts:
* The seed bank manager (if in the States) could potentially use a PO Box for the SASE envelopes to protect their own privacy, although this would incur a fee which could possibly be covered by an optional donation system.
* Offering Venus fly trap seeds could potentially draw some business away from Matt and Leah. On the flip side, it may inspire members of the community to purchase seeds from them at a greater rate because their interest in growing fly traps from seed has been peaked.
* The seed bank manager would need to have thorough knowledge about import, exports, customs, restrictions, etc. as some countries require declarations about specific species whereas others have strong restrictions on the importing of non-native species.
* With regards to the above, would the seed bank be an international endeavour or one only for US soil? Would multiple seed banks be set up to accommodate different countries/jurisdictions?

One other thought; what should we do with something very rare? Think N. rajah, D. magnifica, or something equivalent. Do we want first come, first served? Or should we do a random drawing giveaway if there's only one package, with very few seeds in it?
What do you think?
