Just an aside...

The 1BTC bountry John references below is a 1BTC P2SH output, where the  
redeemScript he provided does hash to the expected value, and is itself a  
2-of-3 multisig, with the following pubkeys, expressed as addresses:


By comparison, the signatories for the 4BTC bountry are:


On the one hand, the vanity address makes it easy to guess who one of the  
signatories is, on the other hand, is it bad form to reuse keys for  

John, you mentioned wanting to disambiguate bounties, perhaps through a  
bounty-specific pubkey. I'm not sure I follow, how is that better than  
just referencing the address of the output, or the TxID, in a 'Table of  
Bounties'? Or you want to embed a hash of your signed message announcing  
the bounty?

Out of curiosity, I suppose right now you just keep pubkeys for the  
signatories you want to appoint and reuse the same pubkey to create these  
multi-sigs, or you have to ask for a new one each time?

 From the signatories perspective, I imagine we're a long way off from a  
wallet receiving or importing the p2sh, tracking that these outputs as  
"yours", and even more, which contract/bounty they correspond to, and  
finally a usable way to accumulate signatures and ultimately spend the  
output to the bounty winner.

And of course, thanks for posting the bounties!
