I don't want to start a thorough discussion about our policies - these
are just my ad-hoc feelings:
- we don't touch anything that requires legal/formal bodies (GSoC was
fine because it accepted individuals)
- if someone does the work and wins some kind of contest/grant, the
money is his and he can do with it anything he wants (for example pay
some developer privately to handle some Lily issue).

Huh?  I get $5000 (of which i'll spend quite a lot on Lily
development, either directly or indirectly), and John Marchesi, GNU
admin, gets $500 and gives it to whomever he decides - in our case
most probably FSF.
