FWIW - as has been mentioned the referral fee if we give them the general
link to Amazon and they buy something is rather small, and if we tell them
to add /evoltorg/ to purchases they would have made anyway, which we didn't
send them to from our site (iow, if they didn't hear about a book on our
site, and added the evoltorg thing to support us, because we'd told them
how), then I think we're violating the TOS.


The best thing to do is the deep linking, which would be what libeo would be
