Thank you for your feedback!
wgetpaste supports multiple pastebins, the result of the "-S" command is:
$ wgetpaste -S
Services supported: (case sensitive):
Name: | Url:
ca | http://pastebin.ca/
codepad | http://codepad.org/
dpaste | http://dpaste.com/
osl | http://pastebin.osuosl.org/
*pocoo | http://paste.pocoo.org/
And pastebin supports http://en.pastebin.ca/

I'm not sure Fedora Paste or openSUSE Paste are better than the previous
ones, but I would ship them (and I will maintain them), because of the
constant support from the upstream.
+ the handy screenshot feature from openSUSE!
