I have a cloud backed storage piece of software that has a WebDAV front end
and multiple back ends. The idea was to make a PAYG service of that, but we
thought there wouldn't be interest.

It works with win/lin/osx/ios/androud clients.

Are you telling me I should revisit this business decision?

Cheers, Maarten
