Hi Lee,

when I say "hopefully completely for free" I don't mean "I am not
prepared to consider paying the great work of someone else". I don't
see the connection.

Honestly, I paid for WordPress plugins several times, and I totally
agree with you when you say that the work of a developer MUST be paid
somehow, by donations or by a commercial license. I am more than happy
when I find a good plugin (even not for free) and I can help the
development of that plugin through a donation or by paying for a
commercial license.

Furthermore, I also am a developer and I developed two (free) plugins
for WordPress. So, I know very well what means working on a plugin or
anything else for days or even months.

In this case, I just asked you guys for a specific kind of plugin, if
I can find something helpful for free it's better, otherwise I am
"prepared" to pay, no problem ;)

In conclusion, I think that less than the 1% of you guys would pay for
a plugin when there is another plugin, with the same features, and
totally for free. Let me know if I am mistaken ;-)
