I tried a different approach. I liked darcs, I thought it works
well with good practices and badly with bad practices (this is
good, I think), and tried to bring it to my everyday life, which
is half made of professional work. In a money driven society, I
don't think it's wise to do ugly things for money and nice things
for free — we should try the best always.

But, really, if it's an exciting project, why not to do it for
money? That way, people and companies in need for security and
reliability for private projects will pay someone to do something
cool, and also support free software.

Thanks for your kind reply,
