Yea, this is actually a general issue I think needs addressed. Some of the bounties can be quite unclear on what exactly is expected in order to fulfill the bounty's requirements.

The waters are muddied even more when other people have already made progress towards closing the issue (ex: All the years of work Don's already put into "[CTFE] copy-on-write is slow and causes huge memory usage").

I find there's bounties I'm more inclined to avoid just because I don't want to step on anyone's toes. Or because if I do X and Y for a bounty, I don't want to and worry about putting the bounty's backer in an awkward position, or accidentally looking greedy, just because there was also a Z I didn't know was expected (or maybe a performance improvement wasn't *enough* of an improvement) just because the issue wasn't well-defined.

But maybe I'm just being socially paranoid?
