I think it's better to use bounties as a reward for doing good work (for
instance implementing a super-cool killer-feature) rather than as a
motivation for doing boring work.

IMHO paying someone money to fix a boring bug has the inherent danger
that people won't fix such bugs anymore, but wait until someone sets a
bounty on them.
