I've got to have some kinds of incentives to raise money!  I'm going
with a limited release model of both object and source - can't quite see
releasing to the world until I've gone through a couple of revs.  Of
course, with a GPL, anybody who gets the alpha or beta code will be free
to redistribute.

If you're ignoring users' digital freedom simply because you want to make money, take your advertising somewhere else, because this is clearly not the place for it. I'm sure there are a lot of free software mailing lists where people straight up wouldn't care, but this is not one of them.

Of course, maybe I've misunderstood the purpose of this list. If so, I invite dissent!
