I may not have been as clear as I intended, so allow me a small
clarification: I was specifically objecting to involving the Debian
project in anything that has to do with money being collected and given
to individuals. This was triggered by the suggestion that we put Flattr
buttons on packages.debian.org pages.

I'm fine with people going out and finding people who pay them to do
Debian stuff. I've done paid Debian work myself. But don't get Debian
itself involved in that, or much vigorous discussion will happen.
