bundling software with TSVN?

Hi,

As you guys may know, TSVN has become quite popular and therefore gets
noticed also by marketing companies.
I just received an offer to bundle a shopping toolbar with the TSVN
installer. I know, I know, most of those are considered spy/ad/malware.
And even if they don't spy or do any harm to the user, most people
consider this very bad, at least annoying. I know that. But: it would be
a way to make some money from TSVN.
Of course, the installation would be optional, and not 'hidden', not
even hidden as a TSVN installation option (like for example the
dictionaries in the current installer) but clearly advertised on the
last page of the installer (after TSVN has been installed, the very last
page where we state "installation successful").

Now, what do you guys think about that? I haven't decided anything yet,
because I'm not really comfortable with this myself - but it's tempting.

Stefan
