That's a chuckle.

As I said, nothing requires the hub to advance anything, and if it does,
Bob can expect to pay for it.

We'll see whether hubs assess a fee for depositing funds, whether the fee
depends on the amount deposited, and whether it depends on the amount of
time it stays there.

I predict "all of the above." There is a name for these kinds of fees.  Can
you guess it?
