Go to oDesk.com and pay someone to do it? That's what I did. I think the community is great at many things, but for those you spend years on not convincing anybody, you can just pay them.

I don't care if it's uservoice or whatever. The thing about uservoice is though that it's working today and they have free plans for open source projects. If there's a better solution, lets use it.
