I must say that I'm sorry you choose not to release the source of something that is GPL (AFAIK - and so is the changes you have done) - because it's not "pretty" enough (I believe that was your words on why you didn't just open it up).
I (also a paying reader) would very much like it if you could just offer CVS access (through sourceforge - no hassle for you then) - so we could have a look at the code - and if you wrote feature-wishlist - perhaps some of us would like the features implemented and decided to do so. Using CVS it would not be too much work to clean up your code yourself (or us the readers just might) - and then merge the new features too.
Hope you see the light - with the code in CVS - it can't hurt - and nobody should be so vain - that there code changes to a GPL project, can't stand the light of day IMHO ;)
