A feat like that deserves a larger reward.

Understanding the new code also requires understanding the context in which it is implemented and I wonder if the later is more of a hurdle here.  Maybe it’s understandable for the exercise to take on the order of days/weeks for a person that’s not done much hacking/exploring of the bro internals?  Just trying to give a sane reference point so anyone taking the challenge isn't discouraged after only 15 mins :)
