I don't mind too much - though I have a similar problem in that many of us
donate large amounts of time to the project which is essentially 'funding'
too that goes unacknowledged. On the other hand that may be a sacrifice we
as a group are willing to make in order to encourage 3rd parties to fund
work on QGIS. It certainly would be good publicity for any organisation
that does fund a feature. If others feel it is appropriate to do this we
can of course add a field, but even then my preference would be to simply
annotate the description field with a final line stating who funded the
feature e.g.:

(Funded by the three little pigs)[http://hohoho.com]
