That's the same thing, really, as what abentley wants.

It's entirely practical.   It's not even a huge amount of work.

It's a great idea.   Let's do it.

It's just that it's very, very critical work and if you screw it up
you can really mess up all arch users (and/or all hackerlab users).

We need someone (qualified) who can say "Ok, I'll spend 4 weeks on
that.  It's only a tiny bit of code changes.... but with 4 weeks I can
certainly nail them."

So, what's that at retail.... like $20K...$25K or so?  (I.e., it's a
labor-shortage-problem, not a hard-to-solve problem.)
