Would using a gnuherds.org pledge on RC bugs be useful here?  Then
people can donate money to get RC bugs fixed in debian, and people who
fix the bug can claim the money.  The claims and pledges would be open,
which I think is important.

I understand there could be conflicts in agreeing on who actually closed
a particular RC bug though.  Hm.  Maybe voting could resolve that...

Just an idea.
