I'd be interested to read them, as my personal feelings lean not 
towards stopping people making money, but definately towards encouraging
people to put improvements back into the community. I feel that once
money making gets involved, it acts as a disincentive to share.

When I write code, I'd feel somewhat "used" if someone snapped it up
and used it to make themselves rich (like that's going to happen :) )
without putting anything back.

Although I guess this is more of an open source/closed source issue
than a free/commercial issue.
