He's been saying all along that a commercial release would happen if manual sales were insufficient, but just as they can't keep up with manual orders they decide to go shareware.

What gives? This is not consistent with previous statements. Apparently he was just kidding when he said there would be no commercial release if manual sales were adequate.

I hate to be the ingrate that points this out, but I think it's much more likely to go GPL if they don't sell many keys or manuals. Food for thought.
