so what we need is a few people with the gall of napoleon to turn up
one morning and put mitres on their own heads.

it seems plain to me that unless someone stands up and says "i'm doing
this blessing stuff", it's not going to get done.  this is largely
because it's a big job and no-one wants to offer someone else's time.

the problem is that not every potential candidate has the skill of a
napoleon, to match the gall to crown him- or herself.
