This is a little off-topic, but have you guys checked out the 'royalty'
system in Mojonation (http://www.mojonation.net)?  Essentially, they created
a system whereby you pay using an invented currency, called 'mojo'.  Mojo
can be produced by anyone, but it has value according to what it can be used
for; Mojonation itself produces one currency, which is of use to pay for
their services, while a bandwidth provider could produce another to provide
for its services.  Like real currency, exchange rates would form, some mojo
would be universally acceptable (and thus act as money) while others would
trade at a discount.  You can pay for content, storage, transport,
processing time, almost anything the network can offer.
