Register for what? Users need something to register for, and we have
nothing to offer what we don't already offer for free.

We already have such a system in place. The donations are shared
according to some scheme we discussed some time ago.

As I said, I haven't really done much research or asked any questions. I
just researched the toolbar and whether it was somewhere listed as
mal/ad/spyware, which it isn't. I have no idea on how they would count
the number of installations. I'd have to ask, but I wanted to first ask
you guys before I consider going further.
