If you add the names of developers, isn't the very next question going
to be "what are you guys up to?" 

Of course just saying fujitsu is funding development will leads people
to ask who and what so I am not sure I see the point in any of it if we
don't do full disclosure...  

Incidentally someone ought to update the TODO list to mark down who is
tackling what, which is another place we can mention fujitsu's
sponsorship if people want.
