  it is the demand of a volunteer to be paid.

  if people want to pay him that's their business, but
i think a larger company may just instead fork their
own copy or fund an internal developer to track this
project IF it is that important to them.

  he may resign or limit his participation in the future
as with any other volunteer effort.

  it is GPL code.
