I'm sure they have much more important things to spend money on
(developers of gcc, gcj, eclipse, openoffice, mono...)

If you are so interested do it Blender-style: setup a site to gather
donations and discuss with Borland their price; be the first to
contribute at least $1k. But please don't ask Red Hat to buy and open
source every piece of software (I've seen request for licensing mp3),
they are doing already more than enough.
