API usage for an open source project?

How can this API be used by an open source project? Should each user be applying for an API key, or just use the developer key? If we use the developer key, I'm concerned that we'll get throttled if too many users use it.

Each person should sign up for their own key, then one key won't get throttled. There are people who make widgets for WordPress and instruct each individual user to get their own key.
