Shawn, I feel like I'm right at the fringes of understanding your point,
but I'm not quite there.

So, to clarify, I hope: in response to Stephen's comment "if the GPL
makes me share my source code, anyone can use it", you're saying, "yes,
but your *financial* model should also be about the value-add stuff, not
just the code."

Am I even close?

(One of the points I'm making in my book on entrepreneurship is putting
money in its place, so all the intellectual property/money issues here
really interest me.)
