One thing I've also done in the past (I don't maintain any Drupal 
modules but did maintain other small OSS projects) was to tell people, 
when they requested a feature, that it would be added to the pile but if 
they want it ASAP I can put a price tag on it. Don't know how well this 
would work with a Drupal module, or if it would be frowned upon, but for 
other projects it has worked well.
