Ben (or anyone else)

Did you end up writing a paypal interface?

I can't really see what would need to be done - paypal basically just requires you to make some magic urls that follow a very simple syntax and need the following information:

* your paypal merchant id (a fixed number)
* your product price
* your product code (optional and totally up to you)
* weight (optional)

and maybe a few other optionals. donations are even simpler

The paypal documents describing this are:
