Well considuring that if I had to fill 30,000 dollars worth of cdroms it doesn't mean that I would have to quite my day job. I don't see much of a problem with it.
And if it's to much effort then just tell them to F-OFF. Who cares? Just because you have a license that says that you have provide the source code and you have a person or company or enemy or whatever demanding 1000 copies of the source code doesn't mean that you have to give it to them,
Good luck on them if they try to then contact the upstream copyright holders and try to convince them that your violating their software licensing by not giving in to their unreasonable demands.
And even then your only obligated to give the source code to the people that are end users. Some spammer who sets up a 1000 accounts or somethign to harrass you doesn't count.
