So it seems there are an number of people who want CTABLES are prepared to pay 
for it.

Not ever having actually used CTABLES,  I don't know exactly what it is, and 
what people
are expecting for their money.    From the spss docs I see it is a big command 
with lots
of options, but perhaps people aren't expecting all of them.

Would you like to draw up a minimum specification, and discuss it with other 
donors?  Then it might be possible for an experienced programmer to estimate 
the time
involved.  There are various "bounty" services for FLOSS improvements which 
one could use to raise the money, and find a programmer to do it.  But first 
the scope
of work has to be defined.

invaluable, especially when it comes to survey banner reports.  Just my 2 cents 
(Well, 1000 cents, but there you go)

     So maybe we can motivate Ben a little. I would think about a kickstarter 
campaign. I'd put in 500USD for a full CTABLES to get that off the ground. I 
think that would also clear the way for using MRSETS in an easy way. 
     @Ben: would money help to motivate you?

     SPSS Tables was the prime reason I purchased SPSS. To run reports that 
Tables can do so nicely.

     A representative of SPSS said on the SPSS list some time ago that the 
CTables module is the most sold module , besides the basic one. 
     As other free or open source stats programmes don't offer this opportunity 
it would really increase the attractivity of PSPP.
