And what about packages which don't *have* an "About" box, or even a
UI? e.g. plugins for gstreamer & Telepathy; Catorise etc.? I'd also
worry about visibility - remember this isn't SOLELY about getting some
small extra cash to developers, but also giving the impression that
maemo.org/downloads/ is playing with the big boys.
