I'd like to point that it is VERY unlikely that "paying a core guy"
would actually cause THEM to modify *core* (where "core" is described as
anything that ships with Drupal). Any decent Drupal developer who thinks
the solution is modifying core is *not a decent Drupal developer*. Your
admonition that "knowing core" is required to be good at Drupal is
incorrect: core developers, and the code they write, serve the lofty
goal of making it easier to *never modify core*. Quality Drupal devs
know how to do magick using only the APIs that core provides.
