I'm thinking that we should consider *very* carefully before we
introduce payments into what had been an all-volunteer effort.  You
may get people to do things they might not otherwise have done, but
you'll also make people wonder whether they should be volunteering at
all.

Offhand, I'd say this is a really bad idea.

Cheers,
David.
