Well, we might use "contracted development" to align your development 
priorities with our needs.  In other words, changing "likely" and I 
think" to "will by some defined date."  There is real value in that, 
apart from "paying for free [beer] software."

That said, free is better.  I and others have wanted this implemented 
for some time, and obviously lack the clue to do so individually. 
Realizing that this is free software and that commitments are difficult 
to ask for, can we get some idea about the priority that this feature 
has and perhaps some timeframe for implementation?
