Paying for someone's time is totally different to paying for some software or 
its method of distribtution. Many GPL app teams have donation possibilities.. 
hopefully we will soon too.

The issue with Pantone etc support is the cost and the actual use of GPL. As 
soon as it would be GPL'd, anyone could use it. Cant see them allowing that. 
They could however do the old binary driver trick like ATi and nVidia do and 
provide a plugin somehow.

Dont worry.. we will cover as many bases as we can.. :)
