Hehe. Sometimes I wonder if we at kdenlive are too honest. Others promise a 
better world and want money before they even know how to do it.

I saw some smaller projects on kickstarter as well. What about putting just 
your 2 months on kickstarter as soon as you know you can spend your time on 
doing it? I'm not sure if a bigger campaign would help us too much at the 
moment, since our main limit is not money but time. And more programmers ;)
