    I agree, this idea has many advantages in distributing the workload and
    compensation in a unique way. SuSE is another example that services
    based models are difficult to execute well, but may be necessary during
    this growth phase as people are still learning what this kind of
    development really means to their businesses. I look forward to seeing
    an implemented software completion bond market.

    A challenge is the reinforcement of traditional development cycles which
    goes against the current trends toward Agile Software Development such as eXtreme Programming or Scrum,
    though any valid alternative should be tried. Perhaps as the market
    landscape adapts this bond model or the bidding model will take hold.
