Thank you all for your thoughts and opinions, both public and private.
I emailed the fellow back and pretty much said something to that
effect. That based on my understanding of what he wanted, it could
destroy my own software sales, and that I would not even consider
such a proposition without a very large price tag attached. I
actually did calculate such a price tag for my own benefit, but did
not present any numbers to him. I do not expect to hear back from
him, but you never know. Presumably he will move on to the next
shareware developer and may have better luck.
The formula I used was very simple: the amount of money that the
software currently owes me for time invested and not yet paid for,
plus the yearly income it produces times five.
Would I sell rights to the software? At the right price, yes :-)
