The only problem being that at Desktop you can drop the $5 into the fine
box when you leave work but I'd have to walk down the bank and either do
a wire transfer or send an international money order. Apart from the
hassle involved there's the fact that all told it will cost me in the
region of $30-40 to pay the fine!

A nice idea but not very practical for the FreeBSD project.
