First - an interesting and fascinating discussion, thank you all.

Second - Rob, if I'm reading this thread correctly, they seem to be 
saying either that the methods you propose (which the thread suggests 
you should expand into having ads on your site, in addition to, or 
instead of, paypal, et al) is attended by a different customer set 
than you are used to (so have different needs than you are used to, or 
currently inclined to, satisfy). And/or to accomplish more 'success' 
(by your definition, money in your pocket, no bad thing) you might 
find it more rewarding to engage a different customer set than you are 
currently used to. If you end up considering these ideas, do please 
comment here. It would be most interesting to hear your thoughts on 
the nature of the beastie, or beasties, i.e. different customer 
'groups', what they're looking for, and how one goes about satisfying 
them - such that you achieve 'success.' Not looking for trade secrets, 
but I think we're all trying to grapple with just what this 'open 
source thing' is all about. It won't be black and white, nor one size 
fits all, so reading about your thoughts and approach would be most 
interesting.
