It is not frowned upon or forbidden by Apache, as long as it does not 
involve Apache directly. For example you won't be able to give money to 
Apache and Apache gives the money to the guys to be paid. We can set 
something like this up through other means. The problem is the 
modalities. Who gets how much? In the past we did get some small money 
here and there for different things, which usually have been used to 
finance developer meetings and such. Maybe a "prize money" for a 
specific issue would be an option.
