Should TPF put up bounties (look at the projects accepted for last year's Summer of Code project)?
Should no one be able a pumpking without the ability to do the job on a full-time basis?
See Perl Grant Approved: Improve Perl 5. Not sure if it's full time, but it's a start.
Should there be some vote among the users of Perl as to which features are important in a release?
Yes, though that "value" needs to matrixed against "difficulty". High-value and low-difficulty features should be first priority.
Another interesting idea could be to have users "vote" with dollar donations to TPF that are earmarked and held in escrow as the bounties from the first idea. That would quite directly determine the market value users place on having certain bugs fixed or features delivered.
