I apologize for not having made it clear enough in my first message.

The second option (i.e. the 50% cut) is *not* currently on the table,
simply because DDG is not the default search engine in web browsers
shipped by Debian at present. What I'm proposing is to accept the 25%
cut that will originate from browsers we ship that have DDG as a search
engine option.

When (and if) DDG will become the default search engine in browsers
shipped by bu, we can think about the second option. But that is simply
not the case at present.


PS I'll get back to other points in this thread later on, but I wanted
   to clarify this point in the meantime
