Yes, and forcing those paying customers to use GPL is very hard (and not
very nice, either).

No, that's not the issue, since I don't believe there will ever be a large
successfull proprietary version of Zope.  I think that is where we differ
in opinions.  Which is something that can only be tested by applying time
on it :).

I just don't think it would be very successfull.  Zope isn't the type of
application that would be great as a closed-source one.  I just can't see
that happen; maybe I'm too naive.
