        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.


       I noticed 

              it is getting about time to leave everywhere
