	In the case of a "trade in" for betterware, the "trade" just
	amounts to a greater discount off the "normal price".

	According to the survey one person on this list mentioned,
	over 75% of all commercial servers are "betterware".  That's
	a big open market for a salesman, but it also means that
	commercial server vendors had better start recognizing that 
	perhaps "betterware" has something to offer, for example, 
	state of the art protocol support.
