As I already said, it is not only a thing of money. You need knowledge 
about internals of JDT, Eclipse and the Groovy compiler to make things 
work. The last we can help with, the former two not. And even if I did 
help with the plugin in the past (before SpringSource) that was in a 
phase when it could not do much more than syntax highlighting. We are 
definitely beyond that level, and so is my ability to help with that. 
And I am pretty sure it is the same for Guillaume, Cedric and Paul. So 
if we find someone doing this, we can talk about funding.

worth a try.

You need another organization for this. For example the Software Freedom 
Conservancy could help here
