Hmm.  Maybe a co-op patronage refund, if not an actual co-op business
organization.  Write a piece of software for $1M.  Sell it for $100
and ship proprietary source.  At the end of the year, send a refund
check if you sold more than 20K copies.  GPL that version in 1-2
years.  Wow, that just might work.
