When we want to "channel funds" (most of us would call this "pay" but
different strokes for different folks :-) to Free Software developers, I see
no reason to run them through an NPO so that it can take a cut, even if
everybody there is a volunteer and the cut is purely in the form of
administrative overhead.

We recently wanted some additional features written for a GPLed product, so we
just paid the author to do it.  No fuss, no muss, no NPO :-)
