Money?  Pshaw.  Credit!  There could be a command-line option
--list-contributors or some such, which makes it trivial to see who
has helped with the program.  "...and the daring souls who found
security flaws in the code:..."

The key is being able to say during a job interview (OK, how many
interviewers use GPG?) or a hot date (?!) "Run this command and see my
name"... and have it take 10 seconds.
