Maybe unrelated, but consider that this could be incorporated into a 
Free Software/Open Source business model for developers as well. Once 
the software forks, it is no longer the same, and the original developer 
can no longer collect.

It's a thought, and half baked at that. Might make for an interesting - 
maybe practical - discussion.
