You are again biasing the discussion by trying to make your dunc-tank
paid developers look like paid developers we already have.

If some company wishes to see GNOME in Debian work better and starts
paying someone to do packaging and bug-triaging work on the GNOME
packages, he will be welcome. This may lead to other members of the team
doing less, but the overall quality of the packages would improve.

Oh, and this already happens with volunteer members. When someone has
more time and does plenty of uploads, you can magically see
contributions from other members decrease.
