I've always thought there should be sites like SourceSupport. This site is a place where you can post a problem you want solved, and how much it's worth to you to have it solved, and a deadline for the solution. When someone submits a solution, they have to also donate $10 dollars towards having the problem solved. Then everybody votes on whether or not that IS the solution, and if everybody votes 'yes', then the people who create the solution get the money.
It's a good way to ask for Open Source software to be created. But, it's also a good way to get people to work on other difficult problems for you.
