[development] ChipIn Module

I've just committed a beta version of the ChipIn (see 
http://www.chipin.com) module to my sandbox (robroy). I'm writing the 
list for a couple reasons:

1. I was looking for some peer review of the module. I'll gladly return 
the favor, it's just nice to have another set of eyes look things over 
for usability, security, etc. So if you have a module/patch you'd like 
me to go over in return, let me know.

2. The folks over ChipIn dig(g) Drupal and after reading the fundraising 
bulletin at http://drupal.org/node/77562 wanted to help out. They have 
offered to waive all transaction fees for Drupal donations and wanted to 
throw a cool ChipIn Flash widget on that page (hence the module), in a 
block, whatever. Once this module is polished, is that something that 
people would be interested in?

I think it's pretty cool to have the donation thermometer to see how 
much we still need for each fundraising drive and ChipIn.com is pretty 
well done.

(I also included script.aculo.us in the chipin sandbox module for review 
purposes. Once this becomes a real module, I'm assuming those will have 
to go for licensing reasons. But, I'd like to include just the bare 
minimum of JS in there to get the color palette slide effect, and not 
have to force users to download an external JS helper module. What is 
the recommended route there?)
