Well, some people (not me) might not agree -- I mean, if something
would take you 20 hours, and somebody offers $10 and a piece of
bubble gum, it's not very encouraging.  If ten people offered the
same thing, it would add up, of course.  But I've heard from some
developers that taking a bounty isn't worth the trouble of setting
up a paypal account.


I'd be happy to take a bounty if anybody offered them in areas I
work on.

Well, that requires converting the paypal balance into actual
money, which requires giving paypal more financial information
than I feel comfortable doing.

An alternative to donating it to the FSF (or whatever charity you
like) would be for the developer to offer a bounty on something
that affects *them* -- either something they want to use for their
own lilypond compositions, or something they want for their own
*development* work (like the source code indentation program or
new build system).
