"I pledged $200 to get the DIB Engine fixed two weeks ago an it still
hasn't been done. What's going on?"
"It's now been two MONTHS since I pledged $200 on the DIB Engine and
it's still not fixed. Wine is so disorganised. There's real money here
and you don't want it. I'm glad I never paid it."
"Six months, no progress on DIB Engine. Never using Wine again. Get
your act together!"
^^ This will happen more than bugs with donations/pledges getting
fixed faster than other bugs.
And if WPF gets the money anyway and no one else, what point is there
attaching the donations to a particular bug?
