Aye, but it doesn't push you over the line from "I'd like to do
this but am too busy with other work" or "meh i don't care
enough" to actually doing it.
I suspect one of those two states cover the majority of people
who can but don't fix many D bugs today.
So while the bounty might be a nice bonus for those who were
already planning to do it anyway, it is unlikely to lead to any
*new* bug fixes; the rate of bug closure before and after
probably hasn't changed (I'm sure we could measure this too to
confirm my gut feeling).
