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 :-)
