How do you get that? Just because its public doesnt mean people wont 
reneg on money....its just an email list, theres no guarantee that 
people would pay . Theres no way to tell if people are who they say they 
are, someone could make up an anon email addy, post a bounty, a dev gets 
the code done and they drop that anon email addy.
