As D0T-C0M said, selling mods tends to be very bad business model because of people can share it freely after paying once. The support is the only way to make money with OSS. Just take a look at the big linux distributions...

I also wanted to add about my prior post that I didn't want my comments to be taken as a Jet-Li bashing.  While I am a firm on my belief that selling mods is a bad trend to be starting, I have not lost sight of the great contributions Jet-Li has freely given to the community over the last few years.  I am sure he is here everyday. This is true dedication.

I guess I'm sadden that I will be without one of my favorite mods when I upgrade to the lastest Yabb version. Also Canadian dollar is only worth .60 cents EUR which increases the asking price by 40%

What a pity!

I know, that Jet Li Mods are good and WIW was a very goog mod in the past.
But i have a board for a nonprofit association, and so we can't pay for mods ....

I hope it was the first and the last mod we have to pay for....

Maybe the idea will catch on, and there will be more and more 'pay' options with things where the base product is open source. But I'm not sure how much I like it....

Well, considering this issue came up something like 3 or 4 years ago, and it is still the only pay mod out there, I have to say it didn't catch on, at least in this community.
