Ok, so what if this system does not allow Debian package maintainers to
specify where the money should go at all? There are only two options:

1. The upstream author includes a file called DONATE that specifies
where donations should go.
2. If that file isn't specified, the money goes to the Debian Project.

This way, none of the concerns about Debian package maintainers being
influenced by money comes into the picture.
