[QGIS-Developer] "Needs sponsor" label? (again) → "Start a bounty"

I really like gis.stackexchange bounty mechanism [1]. Issues could have
a "start a bounty" button, exactly like the gis.stackechange. Users
could allocate any amount between 50 and 500 bounty points, in 50-point
increments. Any user (other than the one reporting the issue) can ass
bounty points.

How they get bounty-points? Donations to QGIS (managed by PSC) awards
bounty-points to that user/company/community. An 1.000,00 € donation
would award 1000 bounty-points. They can invest the bounty points to
solve issues.

Developer(s)/ able to solve the issue would be refunded (in real money)
according to the number of bounty point.

This wouldn't be difficult to implement, I think. The mechanism is
really transparent, for users and for developers.
