It would be nice if free distributions could support giving donations to
the authors of their packages. 

The FSF could help with the backend of this (handling the money, etc),
but code is needed for the frontend, which somehow tastefully and
usefully presents users with this option, perhaps as part of the
installation process.

Ubuntu is doing something like this, where users can choose areas they
want to see improved and give a corresponding contribution.

Any thoughts about how this could be done, or know about any other
places where it's already being done?
