As a thought experiment, how much would you be willing to pay? I'm
often told that the GPL/free software doesn't stop people being
paid for software, so let's try this as a test case. How many hours
of development would you be willing to fund, say at $25/hour?

(I'm not qualified to write such a program myself, but someone on
this list might be able to do this for real if the offer is right.)
