Sounds good to me, too. There are already core developers and contributors
being paid for their work in one way or another, either directly or by
'just' being allowed to work on CPython during some of their paid working
hours. Guido's 50% are only the most prominent example. That has never been
a problem. At the end of the day, everyone has to make a living somehow in
order to find time at all to devote to CPython, so I don't see any room for
an envy debate here.

Getting a paid developer in for the background infrastructure work and the
"stuff that needs to get done but wouldn't" seems like a good way to solve
exactly these problems while making it more fun for the others to
concentrate on what they like doing.
