on http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Summer_of_Code_2008 there was a
statement that such efforts are restricted by "mentoring-manpower".

now that there are real people and a budget dedicated to improve
usability, could it make sense to leverage that effort by bounties
given in a way comparable to google sumer of code?

imo this might also used to attract additional donations from
individuals, as it is simple paraphrasable. and usability is a real
pain to a lot of people.
