Practical note, adding lib2geom doesn't change top 10.

Sounds good to me.

Fine with me.

I would rather just give the top 15 or 20 committers a choice. This is
such a cheap campaign for us we may as well go deeper (see list at end).

tavmjong-free 190 C++
su-v 142 C++
JazzyNico 116 C++

Martin Owens 82 C++
apenner 62 C++
valavanisalex 50 C++
Kris 39 C++
Markus Engel 31 C++
mathog 25 C++

I meant to add that for last year's book campaign, we had a devil of a
time getting someone to actually accept a book for slot #10. All the
candidates felt they didn't deserve it so kept passing it along. This
actually ended up consuming an appreciable amount of my time.
This year, we look to have a stronger top 10, so that might not be as
big of a problem, but for 11-25 it's looking quite a bit weaker.
Perhaps we could give 5 books to a random selection of the top 10
committers, and then pick 5 people for non-coding contributions for some
