One of the ideas that we've been bouncing around at WilberWorks is
certifying plugins.  We haven't really talked much about if we'd
charge for this, or how much; I'm tempted to do open-source plugins
free, and charge for those which aren't open-source, but we haven't
really decided for certain.  (Right now we're more concerned about
getting 1.0 finished and getting the CD we're publishing ready.  I
seem to be spending more time on financial and adminstrative crap than
on code.)

BTW, anyone with any experience with credit cards?
