Wow, I didn't notice that it succeeded.  (my own fault, it hit
slashdot over a week ago...) has details - basically,
"we'll GPL/dual-license this if we can get 100K to bootstrap a
foundation to take care of it"; the CVS repository goes online a month
from now.  Blender is a "scary 3d modelling/rendering application"
that was previously free-for-non-commercial-use.  has a lot of context.
