Your approaching this from the non-Perlish perspective.

You should write the app, put it on CPAN, show the company how to install it and sit back and wait for the bug reports to come in as you write the book of your experience and publish your paypal number begging for donations. That's OSF way!

    This kind of attitude is giving open source/free software a bad reputation. There are many people out there that make money with free software and depend on it for their living. Implying that "free software" means "you don't get paid for your work" means spreading FUD.

    And there's nothing "Perlish" about that.
