I thinks that this is a good idea. Just imagine, companies like Canonical, Red-Hat, Novell etc.. create some sorte of Kickstarter website but for opensource projects, then anyone who want to contribute to the open-source world just propose his idea, and say how much he needs in order to work full time on it. And if people believe in the project, and they have money, they just send to support.

I think that it will be very useful. Also I think it should be like an open auction. Users could suggest ideas to developers and developers could offer a price and a project-time (time to implement the suggested feature); then users could choose a developer with an appropriate experience, price and project-time and send him (her, them) money.
