I'm actually in a position to do some of that on paid time...  So I
certainly will.  They'll all be for boring engineering apps, but hey,
a bug's a bug.

Even $8,000 doesn't sound impossible...  In fact, I'm sure that could
be raised in the name of a popular game.  $10,000 didn't turn out to
be too hard a figure to rustle up to buy 8800 cards for the nouveau
folks.  If there are a couple big-name games that are only a few
shared bugs away from working reasonably well, it might be do-able.  I
don't know enough about the bleeding edge state of Wine to know if
that situation might exist somewhere, however.
