Save it for a sleepless night. :-)

Funny you should ask. Something like this just came up on the support list. 
Someone with a church wants to make some CDs and sell them at a fund 
raiser. Under GPL this is no problem, IMO. But, some of the modules have 
other licenses that could be a problem.

In your case, customizing the program and CDs would not be a problem for 
the GPL either, IMO, as long as you keep the GPL portions GPL.
