When making feature requests, do the "Stack Overflow Gods" perceive a bounty on a feature-request as a means to enthusiastically make a request?
Disclaimer: My question is partially motivated by a desire to see this feature request implemented. While the request already had fairly substantial visibility, I believe that over the course of the bounty only four more users voted. Is there a certain voting threshold for feature consideration (for which offering a bounty would help a request attain)?
Finally, I'm also very interested in the responses to this question because, having offered a bounty here and not received what I deemed to be suitable additional answers, I was unsure how to award the bounty. Sheepishly, had someone provided an answer, 'Yes, this feature should be implemented', I would've wanted to award it the bounty (and then quickly felt compelled to flag it as not-an-answer).
