I second Tero's idea of having them for some sort of purchase. Even more so
I feel that even if we are to limit ourselves to three to five of the locked
modules for improvement/corrections, we should never "give up on a module"
because no one would want it. I regularly write information articles on
church topics, and find it extremely useful to have all of the uncommon
translation available for my ideas and information.

In Christ,

While I would like to get all the modules free (who wouldn't), I'm ready
to pay a reasonable amount for modules I really like to have.

To sell modules, you could consider some payment processors out there
who take care of the order handling, transactions and electronic
delivery. They charge 10 % - 20% of the transaction and offer multiple
payment choices (www.kagi.com is the cheapest I know).

That way nobody would need to handle the the daily routine. Of course
some paperwork is still needed to forward payments to copyright holders,
but that is a monthly or quarterly task. If you have a good piece of
software to prepare and print out the necessary reports most of the work
is just writing out checks (or money transfers).

I submit this for your consideration.
