Yeah, I see the bounties more like a reward ("OK, you fixed something
I wanted to be fixed, there you go") than a motivator to fix issues (I
don't think anybody will say "Oh! I want to work in this issue because
I can make $100!").

Is still better than nothing, and at least a nice gesture to the
community, but definitely not bounty-driven development :D
