While I agree that some of the things mentioned above would be nice to 
have, I wonder if this is one of the reasons that some folks may be 
uncomfortable taking donations. Please don't misunderstand, I am not 
trying to single out either of the above authors, just replying to get 
this in the thread.

Is it possible that some folks are uncomfortable with taking donations 
because they are afraid that these donations may be used to try to steer 
development? I don't think there is anything wrong with a developer 
agreeing to prioritize tasks based on donations/bids, but some 
developers may not want to go that route. I personally don't think that 
should be a reason not to accept donations. Just make it known up front 
that donations won't steer development.

just my $.02,
