That's indirect and ambiguous; your own success doesn't guarantee nor even make 
likely more time for you to work on bounties.

If you want to be fair, promise a certain amount of the proceeds to be added to 
the bounty amount for whatever it is you think you'd work on if success for you 
happens to lead to more time to work on Lilypond.  Then if your own success 
happens to lead to less dev time, Lilypond still benefits _directly_ by having 
increased bounty amounts.
