The problem I see with these is they still all rely on the people that
offer into the bounty to pay at the time the bounty is completed and
the money is not stored somewhere, like an account, with the
possibility of later return if the bounty is not met by a certain
date. I hope that noone would renege on their donation to the bounty,
but I think that is the fear Isaac and perhaps other dev's have with
the bounty concept.
I'm going to keep looking into this to see if there is a good way to
do this. I'm ready to start a bounty for a MythMusic re-write...
