The size of the cut Paypal takes defeats any notion of micropayments as
far as I'm concerned. We'd probably generate more revenue from google
advertising especially if people start creating clipart about asbestos and
the disease Mesothelioma (draw a nice set of lungs maybe?).

It is apparently a lot of hassle for not much return. The GIMP developers
were able to negotiate a deal with Gnome who accepted earmarked donations
on their behalf. Not sure we could negotiate such a deal or if we would
even generate enough donations for it.
