I don't think money is a good motivation for this. Most free software
people don't care much about money. Being mentioned on the title page of a
well-visited site is far better. Besides, how would you get the money to
the people? Imagine the winner lives in russia. Some years ago I wanted to
pay for a shareware package developed in AFAIK Canada. Doing so by money
order (hope this is the right term) would have cost me about USD30 in fees!
