That's basically because we use paypal for this. I believe you can pay to them
in a few major currencies, but those are all converted to USD for the paypal
account.

Yes, getting the USD from paypal to Sweden and SEK is somewhat expensive, but
we hand out money in all directions (buying hardware to developers) and then
it makes little sense in having them in SEK.

Besides, we have no viable alternative to Paypal at this point!
