We may also very quickly be obliged to hire some lawyers,

dollars need cautions, how do Mozilla do?)

According to wikipedia, the Mozilla Foundation has 150 employees.

sure, but how is it managed? (not that I hope so much cash very soon
:-))

We can look at Foundations that manage thousands instead of millions
as a start...

That might be more realistic :-)

Of course, the management principles remain the same, it's just the
amount of workload that differs.

The GNOME Foundation and the KDE eV both handle that
very well, with a board and a part-time/full-time administrator. (The
GNOME Foundation also has a part-time sysadmin and a full-time
executive director.)

A foundation is just a special kind of legal entity - the practical
aspects of how it is managed is the same as any other business.
