[Ardour-Users] Could this solve Ardour's financial headache?

I have no idea whether the following ideas would work or have merit, but 
I thought I would mention them--

* Government grants -- As others have mentioned, perhaps applications 
for government grants could be written and submitted to appropriate 
government agencies.

* Educational institutions -- Perhaps some arts-oriented educational 
institutions or programs within educational institutions would be 
interested in supporting Ardour financially and popularizing its use in 
their programs.

* Donate for your favorite features -- Perhaps a list of features that 
developers are working on or plan to work on, or which are requested by 
users, can appear on a web page. Each feature would have a "Donate to 
this feature" button (linked to PayPal for example), and developers 
would give priority to and work more on the features that receive the 
most donations. (I would probably donate fairly regularly to 
MIDI-related features, for example).
