Back in February we and Linux Foundation announced sponsoring Milosz Derezynski to work on the text tool.
I see that according to http://www.linuxfund.org/projects/inkscape/ there simply wasn't enough funding. Maybe the Inkscape committee could discuss this and sponsor the project? Our Text tool really demands attention.

Personally, I'm just a little concerned about paying developers in general. I realize that this is a small situation -- but I guess I worry about the precedent there.
