Thanks for your note on my first question.  

I'm just interested in our users experience and would definitely agree
that for an actual start-up a lawyer should be consulted.

Does anyone have any ideas on both questions?  Its definitely relevant
to get an idea of what you have encountered before other users follow
along the same path.

My advice is contact an actual lawyer in the state your LLC will be
registered.  They can help you way more than PmWiki users/developers
ever could.  Nothing against this group, they're great.  It's just that
for legal advice it's best to get it from a lawyer, that way if get bad
advice you have legal avenues.
