In order for there to be significant bounty action there has to be
enough money there to pay the bounties.  The problem with the "wait
and see" attitude is that it slows things down.  That's not saying
they're not funding development, they are, it's just that everything
they fund comes out of their pocket.

The whole idea behind the LxMSuite stuff is to allow users to fund the
development of an open source product. Not "what do I get for my $5 a
month?". The value lies in seeing what you care about get worked on.

Nope I'm waiting for your subscription to  LxMSuite so they'll be able
to fund bounties and pay one someone to write it for you. ;)
