    (1) Don't underestimate the visibility a site like Kickstarter or
    IndieGoGo provides.

That visibility is useful for some sorts of activities -- those whose
potential supporters are more likely to look at the crowdfunding site
than to be contactable by the project.

Is it likely that Emacs development would excite people who happen
upon it in such a site?  Or would most of the funds come from people
told about the project by the FSF?  I expect the latter.

Maybe it is possible to try both a site and direct donation.
