I visited such a site a few months back, but cannot recall the name or URL.
They had e.g. numerous Debian things. If the useR png image was made
available, they could do the commercialisation. With a bit of luck, we may
find a shop that would also donate back a percentage of the proceeds the
family^H^H^H^H^H^foundation. There is probably less merit in the purely
commerical play.


The relationship between the computed price and reality is as yet unknown.
