I posted this question, which received two outstanding answers.
Since I can only select one as correct I decided to award a bounty to the other one.
I thought it might be preferable if bounties of this sort could skip the wait period and just be awarded immediately. This would mean they don't sit in the 'featured' column for a day. It's not that I mind waiting to award the bounty, but it seems to me that a question which already has an answer worthy of an extra bounty is the least likely question to need additional featuring.
