I would certainly pay bounties.
The only problem I see really is that there are many issues which are
wrapped up together.
For example, I'd happily pay AU$100 to have rock-solid with all the
basic phone functionality, but for me this means suspend / resume, no
echo, a simple (as in easy to use and understand) graphical volume
control which can be adjusted during calls and automatically saves
changes to the appropriate state file, PIM database and PIM
synchronisation, Tasks / Calendar / alarms.
From a user's perspective, these are kind of one big compound issue
which I'd call "give me equal functionality / reliability to a cheap
nokia", whereas from a developer's perspective they're many small and
widely diverse things that need to be done / improved.
I certainly think it could be worth somebody setting up a bounties
website, I believe I've seen similar things in the past...
