Would such a person take this position voluntarily and unpaid?

Existing stable devs and sysadmins are paid with "unlimited power" in the
project now. Is that a good thing? If we get more devs/sysadmins "for
free", we're splitting the "unlimited" into halves effectively making it
limited and much less appealing. Can we replace "a free unlimited power"
payment we give to dev/sysadmins now with any other scalable means, be that
money or anything other?
