Allow team takes to be specified in shares not just $. #1609
I can see percentages work when the project is small and everybody is underpaid anyway.
When the project becomes better funded and people take full time salaries anyway, dollar amounts will work better because unlike percentages it leaves the new dollars open for new team members.
Basically percentages prioritize internal fairness over team growth.
Yes, but.. that would mean that anyone wanting more that $ 0.01 would still have to increase their $ amount. Which in my opinion would kinda defeat the point?
Maybe use percentages capped by the $ amount if the take would be more that X amount? (X possibly being a setting in the team account preferences?)

I wanted this until I thought about having more than 100 people in a team; percent granularity isn't enough, and also isn't intuitive enough. Instead I suggest 'shares'; the total number of shares in existence is the sum of the number that people allocate for themselves - if everyone gives themselves the same number, the money is evenly split. If everyone gives themselves one share, but one person gives themselves two, that person gets twice as much money as everyone else - because the share pool is diluted by an extra share, each share is worth a little bit less.
