So would you even oppose, say, the inclusion of a package
"payswarm-donate" that reads a DONATION file from /usr/share/doc/$pkg
(if it exists) and provides a convenient "payswarm-donate $pkg $MONEY"
command that uses Payswarm to transfer money to the destinations
specified in the DONATION file?
Because that'd be my suggestion for Manu. It's as convenient as
apt-donate, but doesn't imply any sort of official blessing.
