Eclipse Bounties at OpenLogic

OpenLogic is looking for Eclipse gurus (I would presume anyone well qualified would be good, but their FAQ hints at a strong bias for committers) to earn bounties for "resolving incidents".

The topic was thrashed out last month on Slashdot. OpenLogic opted for a "points" program under the assumption that bounty hunters would rather have an option for gifts over cash because "significant others" might try to divert the cash to the kids braces rather than for an XBox.

Ok, so this isn't the same bounty mechanism and level of "fun-ness" that I think Zx was looking for, but it still an interesting business model with interesting implications to open source projects.

What are your thoughts on OpenLogic's approach?
