So perhaps you could make a market here by establishing a channel saying
"I'll pay 32 msat per 500 satoshi per hour for the first 3 days"
When you open the channel with 500,000 satoshi donated by the other guy,
you're then obliged to transfer 32 satoshi every hour to the other guy
for three days (so a total of 14c or so).
If the channel fails beforehand, they don't get paid; if you stop
paying you can still theoretically do a mutual close.
Maybe a complicated addition to the protocol though?
