I'm a bit surprised that you of all people are suggesting this... I was
told that any proposals for bounty systems are regularily shot down in

I talked to RMS a couple of months ago about the possibility for people
to donate to development of individual GNU projects through FSF, and he
didn't like it: He fears that this might reduce the amount of uncommited
donations to FSF, that can be used for campaigning, which he considers
more important nowadays than sponsoring actual development...

(He did seem willing though, if I understood him right, to indirectly
support projects through relatively inexpensive means like sponsoring
developer conferences.)
