Bounty for fixing CPAN modules

Yesterday I had this idea of creating a site where people and companies could offer bounties for fixing specific bugs in a piece of open source code. Then I ran a search and found Bountysource.

I wonder, have you or the company where you work ever used it? Would your company be ready to offer bounties for fixing specific issues in a CPAN module or even in core perl? (bugs or new features alike.)

Would such bounties be a better way for TPF to spend their grant-money?
