What part of 'public website' did you fail to understand? The concept of 'personal wishlist' doesn't make much sense on a public website; if we're expected to ignore the list (because it's personal) why bother posting in the first place? If we're not supposed to ignore the list, then it's just another person trying to get special attention for their pet bugs.

The concept of a system for donating to particular fixes is discussed fairly often but no one has ever implemented anything more complex than 'pledge the money in the bug'. I guess a simple improvement would be a hasdonations keyword so that people could easilly find bugs with money pledged. Having said that, I don't notice lots and lots of extra attention being paid to bugs with money. Oftentimes, I think the hourly rate you'd get for working on a bug with a few hundred dollars bounty isn't enough to entice people who wouldn't fix the bug eventually even without the extra incentive.
