Patches don't get committed to core unless they're of good quality -
anyone who's been involved in core development will know about how
much work is required to get even a simple patch past the critical
eyes of Dries and co.

So I think this 'game' or 'tournament' idea would work, because an
issue that makes it to 'fixed' status has almost always involved some
quality work.
