You are always free to ask, but whether there are people willing to
do it is a matter of luck. Based on a quick look at the code I would
estimate that such a project would easily take a couple of hours, 
and probably more (using the rule that such projects always take 
longer than expected even if you have already taken this rule into 
account). If you consider the hourly rate of professionals, you 
can see that you are asking for quite a bit.

I would say that the main factor that would lead people to make 
such a donation to you, would be that that person was already 
interested in this problem. (S)he may even have some rough code 
ready or similar code that can be quickly adapted to your 
problem. Since some of the authors you cite are on the 
statalist, this may well be possible. However this is by no
means guaranteed, and the answer may well be "no", in which
case you are unlikely to get a response on this list. (Or you
get a long answer like this, which is my way of saying that I 
am not going to do it)

Sorry,
Maarten
