I sympathize 100%.  A lot of people are quick with the cattle prod for
throwing every bit of useful code out to the waiting world.  But they
forget just how much work it actually is to release software.  If you
try releasing code with a minimum of effort, you're subject to licensing
flames and users who expect bottomless tech support and four score reams
of professionally-edited documentation.
