I don't mind the commercialization of intermediate steps; we could use the
revenue and it is allowed or even encouraged by the IRS rules governing
nonprofits. But the "intermediate steps" have to be true intermediates,
spinoffs, of a direct-to-Singularity core project - not simplified
projects that were undertaken instead of the real project because a VC
wanted something out the door as soon as possible.
