Though I do agree that it would be nice to have an *option* to send a
bank transfer and/or have an address to mail a cheque.

To take up criticism before it becomes a discussion: While Github is
annoying, you can read it without running proprietary Javascript (I just
checked that by opening it in eww), and you can interact with it using
