Does making VC ROI expectations from service revenue without declaring
something proprietary to sell it strike anyone else as financially
implausible?  I emailed abisource about this, but I didn't get
convincing answers.

And, why would I want to subject myself to software that's been coded
to maximize service revenue?  Aren't the quality incentives backwards?
