This idea was born because I'm not a developer but I want to help Wine,
this is not a perfect idea, help me to make it better!
Maybe this button will appear only on very few bugs/projects (2-3
max?) and money could go directly to Wine and after bug/project will
be released/fixed money could go to people.
Now Alexandre decides if a patch will be included or not, so I think
he will have the task of deciding also money issue.
Sorry for my english..
