Hehe. It was funny seeing people finding that out - though it was the 
first thing which came to my mind when seeing "Debian Woody" quite some 
time ago. I must have been lectured English using tasty reading 
material, I guess. Or I've been subject to too much crafterm'isms over 
the past years. ;-)

CREDITS should be used for proper donations, developed parallel to the 
collaborative community process, IMHO, and donated in an official way to 
the ASF (using the proper paperwork). Looking at the current list, we 
should actively try to keep it as short as possible. Web3 should be in 
it, as well, to give an example. I'm -0 to add any little company-funded 
piece of code into the CREDITS file, since it would become a marketing 
tool then.
