I want you to keep releasing your software under the GPL because I use and
enjoy it. With a different license, it would become just another thing not
worth wasting my time on (I require the rights to change and redistribute
all the software I use). Your programs are very good, but anything can be
improved and it shouldn't always have to be you who does it. If someone
wants to tinker with your baby, let them. It's OK, you have backups.
