I think there were similar discussions on this topic before but don't 
remember the reasons why it did not carry on.

We will be interested to discuss in more details if others do. should 
this topic be moved on to http://groups.drupal.org/consulting first, a 
web interface seems easier for sorting things out before we decide what 
format/structure this market place should be.
