It sounds like the "Sell It, Free It" business model from
Sometimes that's less politely called ransomware.
It'll be possible to merge, just a lot more painful than necessary
and I'd expect it to cause problems for both the community and
the developer's customers if the merge doesn't go cleanly.
I hope that this will provoke customers to buy elsewhere, from Support
Sellers, Service Enablers and Accessorisers, and avoid that unnecessary
merge pain, but they've already seemed more masochistic than I expected.
