Oh, you'd think so.  But in my market, demand <> paying customers. 

I liken it this way.  I tell my clients I'll charge them $1 to show them 
how to make $5.  Their response is to suggest that why don't they not 
pay me the $1 and instead I just show them how to make $4.  They don't 
always appreciate that none of it works if I don't get my $1.

Which is one of the reasons I'm considering GPL.  Tough to sell much of 
it anyway.
