"This change has been contributed by an independent developer on a
contingency base.  To make this approach work, please contact him if you
consider it worth recompensating."

This sort of text can be placed in the commit message (where it will be
mostly visible to actual other developers) and in the "What's cooking"
reports while, well, it's cooking.  It won't reach the mass of "ordinary
users", but while they are quite a large audience, they are also least
likely to care enough about isolated performance changes.  And while it
will be a limited run, "What's cooking" is also read by non-developers.

Those are the two venues I can currently think of that would seem
"scalable", at least with a text of that size.  Namely where it would
not become quite a total nuisance (though naturally less effective) if
everybody tried doing the same.
