Though I wasn't being serious above, I'll bite.

Isn't there some sort of bug repository on Savannah?  Perhaps the common 
complaints should be listed there* along with pointers to relevant mailing 
list threads, and your prices for implementing them.

* Isn't the passive voice wonderful?  Though I do see a need for 
gnupg-signed commits, multi-user archives, and more permissive filename 
support, right now I haven't run into any of these problems in my own arch 
use.  So right now I just can't commit to working toward any of these 
things, but when the time comes I think that I'd want to see the price 
list, or at least the mailing list threads where the features were 
discussed before.
