But presumably the reason they aren't working fast enough for your 
liking is that they *are* doing it in their spare time. So anything 
beyond that is giving up the day job, which means paying as much as the 
day job did for that time... a man-hour is a man-hour, really. If you 
want to pay someone for *literally* what they are already doing, then 
I'm sure they would be happier, but it wouldn't make anything happen 
quicker, because it's still the same amount of time spent.
