Indeed, and that's the reason why I am not sure whether I want to
be listed on such a referral service at all.  Working for Hollywood
would probably involve impossibly tight deadlines and no appreciation
of what it means to craft a good conlang.  I'd have to bang something
up in a haste which I'd probably regret that I had made it afterwards.
