Why think so small?  I mean, as long as we're having a big thread about 
bugzilla features that nobody actually intends to implement, why not have it 
bugzilla come up with its own revenue stream and pay you directly from that?  
I mean, with all of these mails I keep getting about ways to get rich, it 
can't be that hard, right?

While we're at it, we can probably use a new resolution for features 
developers want called DOITYOURSELF, which I think would apply to most of the 
things in this thread.  (*)
