I live in Canada.  Two hours, round-trip, away from the nearest bank and
post office.  For me to send in $1 U.S., if you can even buy
denominations of US currency that small, is a fairly significant
undertaking for me.  I would not contribute $1 U.S. but would consider
more if I saw it as a valuable contribution of my money *and* time.

Of course, if d.net took VISA, that's a whole different matter.
