Thanks for this generous offer.

There's no way to buy the commercial version since it's downloadable for
free just like the net distro.  You can purchase a buyout license, user
support, or developer support, see

So far there's no commercial version derived from 1.7.  The intention is
to wait a couple of weeks until the dust settled around the 1.7 release
and then move over at one point in the first quarter of 2010.

Having said that, a small user support contract would certainly help
development since that's basically how my job is paid.  If your company
is really interested to do that, please feel free to contact our team
