Asked sufficiently politely, I have 1000 yen that says you'll get it.

*All* of Jamie's lemacs and xemacs code is assigned to the FSF, except
maybe that which is part of lwlib (via his contract with Lucid,
courtesy Richard P. Gabriel, but I've never heard him complain about
it, and I've given him several opportunities).  AFAIK he has nothing
personal against the current maintainership, either of BBDB or Emacs.

There's some chance much of that has been done for BBDB 3 anyway.  If
Roland tells Jamie how much, it might improve your chances of getting
an assignment.

It might also amuse Jamie sufficiently if somebody actually sent him
the dollar.  (I *wanted* my dollar, damn it, and it never occurred to
me I wouldn't get it.  I would have happily sent a contribution of $25
by check :-) in return, but I would have framed the dollar I got for
the first, and only, software I've ever sold.)
