What if I can't distribute the modifications or a web site built
using GPL'ed components because I also use a commercial library
in it? 

To quote Dave Winer: "[The GPL is] designed to create a wall between
commercial development and free development. The world is not that
simple. There are plenty of commercial developers who participate in
open source. Python belongs in commercial products. How does that hurt

I _do_ want to give something back to the community, but I do not
want to be forced to give away for free every piece of code I wrote 
because some silly person thinks it's okay to earn money with everything 
else but it's morally wrong to earn money with software development.
