Fun yes, but dare I say it, a waste of precious Volunteer resources. 

All lunar orbits are inherently unstable and will impact after a couple of years. The link budget requirements would not attract a mass user base. 

I suspect the number of Technically Capable volunteers is already being thinly stretched in trying to provide both the primary objective Phase-IV Lite (funded by Federal Government dollars) and the secondary objective the Eagle HEO.
