Yes, this is the same issue we had at Kiva when I and another engineer said we were going to explore accepting Bitcoin. I provided a lot of caveats but there were already two blog posts about it out on the interwebs the next day.

As I noted in the thread where Yishan mentions looking into Bitcoin, there are a lot of barriers to entry, barriers that we were not able to overcome at Kiva (at least for now). Maybe as a for-profit entity they will have better luck though as they have more options open to them, I'd just caution people about getting their hopes up.

The Bitcoin "community" really is it's own worst enemy.
