(a) would probably be any national bank account (at least in Europe).
(b) Would probably be nothing.

An added benefit would be that most national banking systems takes a
smaller commision than PayPal¹. If opening bank accounts in a number
of countries will attract so much more donations that the extra work
is worth it, it probably should be done. This, however, should be in
the future some time.

¹ PayPal charges a commision of approx. 2-5%. In Norway (which I
  believe is quiet typical for Europe) a flat fee ranging from nothing
  to NOK 5 (USD 0.65, EUR 0.60) is normal.
