[meteorite-list] Excessively Large Reward a bad precedent.

A $5,000/kg or $10,000/kg reward for the first kg may be appropriate for
most some falls. But quickly the newspapers will drop the 'first kg'
part and spread the value at $10/g. There will also be unit errs and
report the value at $10,000/lb.
$20,000/kg is ludicrous.
I think we, as a community, should make some kind of gentleman's
agreement with the highest reward that should be offered. Quickly, a
point will be reached that will be counter-productive.
