Just adding some notes to this...

Honour system or not, I'll also be asking you to please hold on to your
receipts (just in case we have to do anything more formal).

Also, I'll attach a crude calculator that I'll be using to compute the
reimbursements (warning, it may have bugs), the core of which can be
described by the following Haskell function:

reimbursements pot []     = []
reimbursements pot (x:xs) = payment : reimbursements leftover xs
  payment  = min share x
  leftover = pot - payment
  share    = pot / fromIntegral l
  l        = 1 + length xs

This is just a gauge, mind you.  We haven't worked out exactly how to
distribute these funds.  My aim is for something which is simple and
equitable.  We'll probably decide the whole thing by consensus, if we
do not reach one, then we can fall back to this code.
