[development] Asking for donations in contrib

Hello Drupal,

I've heard the name ChipIn (http://www.chipin.com/) tossed around a few times in
relation to developing on a donation basis, and I'm wondering how it works out
for developers, users and the community.

Specifically, I'm reaching a point in DHTML Menu
(http://drupal.org/project/dhtml_menu) where beside bug reports I often see
requests for some pretty substantial features, which admittedly would be very
cool, but would also take a lot of development time. I currently develop and
maintain this module in my free time.

It would be great if I could fix bugs for free but use donation drives to
sponsor new features. That would probably be better than selling customizations
directly, because it is less expensive to individual customers. Do you have any
suggestions or criticism on this idea? :)


Nothing beside remains: Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away...
