No. What it does mean is that the ISC is seriously looking at limiting the 
redistribution rights of some of our future software to those who have 
contributed towards it's development. We are often hearing from people 'Why 
should I give you money if my competitor will get it for free?', so we have to 
have an answer to that. Then again, some of our funders are funding us based 
on the fact that the software will be generally available, so not all things 
will go that way.

We are still very committed to getting code out to small end users who need 
highly functional software.
