1.) Why would you want to "buy" a developer?  Hire a free-lancer if you 
want implemented features.  Also, the development of Roundcube is slow 
as it is, and you'd detract from the speed of development by having a 
developer work for you.

2.) If you're implementing this on such a huge level, don't you think 
you should wait for a non-beta software to be used?  I mean, do you 
really expect 50k users to use it every day and not have issues?  And 
why pre-beta software?  That's one of the craziest thing I've ever 
heard.  You're setting yourself up to fail.

3.) The search function is already implemented in the CVS versions.  So 
that's one feature down.....
