Congratulations, Jason! You're one of my Pascal heroes. I know you have done 
many things using FPC.

Your product is awesome. If you want to make FPC got noticed by the world 
(especially C/C++ developers out there) by using this application, I suggest you 
to make this application open source. Another great application using FPC that's 
not able to show FPC off is Pixel, because the the author insists to make it 
closed source (and commercial).

Or at least, you can make it dual-license ala mySQL, if you want to get some 
advantages over it. About the database backend, actually I prefer to choose 
Firebird because it has same spirit as FPC: good product for free (without any 
additional terms). FPC+Firebird+LightHTTPd is unbeatable combinations, they're 
all free, multiplatform, and great. :)

Yes, I believe you do. I'll help to spread this product in some communities 
where I involved in.
