You're more than welcome to re-license any of your original
code under any license you choose. Naturally, you won't be able to
re-license other peoples' code.
Of course, the discussion on whether or not you can make any
money off of GPLed code is outside the scope of this mailing list.
it is getting about time to leave everywhere
