hi Marko, yeah, I have not done this; being that the concept is contrary 
to my principles and sensibilities these days. So,

   1) no intellectual property
   2) no software idea patents
   3) no obfuscated code
   4) ship the source, or don't ship anything/

In my view coding (and all other aspects of computer science including 
software engineering) is a liberal art; it should be open, free (libre), 
and available to everyone. People learn best by doing, and the do best 
by reading what others have done before them.
