#3937: Fix annoying donation panel

 The periodic "please donate" panel in Cyberduck is extremely annoying.

 I love open source software, and am involved in more than one project
 myself (one of which has received thousands of dollars in donations), but
 I would never harass people the way Cyberduck does.

 I'd like to see requests for donations become a lot more subtle (maybe a
 menu item, a prominent button on the website, and a prominent button in
 "new version available, install now?" messages.

 I realise it costs money to create/distribute quality software, but if
 your project is good enough (and Cyberduck certainly is), then there's no
 need to nag people. The donations will come regardless, and plenty of them
 (I know this from first hand experience).

 I'm almost annoyed enough to create a fork of the project without any such
