Thanks for your input!
As this is my pet project I do want to keep complete control over
development and also keeping the code as compact as possible. Keeping it
closed source would secure that for me, that's really the main reason.
The other (not that important) reason is that I code this in my
lunchbreak (and when bored and nobody is looking) via remotedesktop. And
putting in more hours is not really possible except working less and get
paid for the software. If there's a opensource way around it I would do it.
Still, I have given myself a year to get to a workable version and in
the mean time I will decide how to release it.
