Transfer money to friend's Steam Wallet

I was just thinking about this today and I was surprised this wasn't implemented yet. It would be neat if I could transfer a bit of cash to some friend's accounts

Good/Bad idea?

Could of been done however will likely never be done because it can cause alot more harm than good. Gives people more reason to hack accounts.
They already have the option to gift a game. Which gives the equal effect. You send them $$$ so they can get this item or you buy it and then gift it - same result.

Look at it like this.

If I gifted you a game, reversed payment through my bank, they freeze your account.

How would you like it if someone sent you a gift to your wallet and they reversed payment? You would probably have your account frozen for a week or more until it was fixed.

Or better yet, use a STOLEN credit card and gift money to your Steam account? THey may just cancel your Steam account in it's entirety.

Then it's the same as buying a game with a stolen credit card.

I wanted an item in TF2, that'd cost 29pence. I have 21pence in my wallet.

Someone said they'd have given me the 8p if they could.

Allowing gifting like that adds community spirit.

Voting for this as well, unless it's been discarded by Valve already?
