What if, as an author, I think users who want to donate should donate
about $1 for Catorise, and $2 for Hermes? Given there's no processing
overhead for maemo.org, why not let application authors set whatever
they want? (even $0.10?)

By having an amount suggested, it'll feel more like an app store - and
I *think* users who don't have to decide how much to donate ("is such
a low amount derisory?") will donate, on average, more.
