+1 to both.

Case in point: Bitcoin is supposed to be an easy way to donate, but
getting one's hands on Bitcoins requires jumping a bunch of hurdles if
one doesn't know the right people. Not sure whether the conversion rates
have stablized or not, but the fluctuations there also present a problem.

Since PayEnemy is kind of a last resort, it sure would be awesome to
have an easy way to donate to developers.
