Problem is, most of the things you might want to have
fixed are pretty expensive.  Let's say a bug takes ten
days to fix.  Assuming $100/hr (which is not far off for
contract development), that's $8K right there.

Lots of folks have thought about how to solve
the problem, but dealing with money is complicated.
It'd be better for you to donate time triaging bugs, IMHO.

Just reproduce one bugzilla entry a day for a week, and
document what you find, and we'd be very happy!
