Another alternative is not to be a banker :)

Besides now that you nox'd your profession and assumed
income you have to contribute monetarily to the GNU
movement, or else...

Yes, in principle it is a good approach. I say "in
principle" because sometimes it isn't possible to
bridge that gap satisfactorily. You get a half-baked
result which can be even more frustrating. Say that
Outlook is 50% the way you want it. Adapted Gnus is
80% the way you want it. When you use the 80% you are
constantly reminded of those lacking 20%, and in your
mind they start to grooo000w. Soon you are at 50%
again, only this time you are aware of your failure as
well which makes it 40% or 30%. But if you bridged the
gap 95%-100% then your efforts are well spent
- congratulations.
