'His only request is that he wants to see the amount get over $10,000 so is requesting others donate what they can,' says the story at Amiga.org. Rock on!" The AmiZilla project aims to raise a bounty to encourage programmers to port Mozilla to Amiga OS.

To heck with "the overwhelming majority of Mozilla users". They're not paying for the port, Amiga users and even former Amiga users (moi) are.
As to your question, I reiterate that this won't take developers from the current Mozilla project, it will in fact ADD Amiga users to the existing Mozilla base of developers. You would not get those Mozilla users to contribute to a non-Amiga port. And since it's their money, not the foundation's, where's the harm to Mozilla? There isn't any.
