I didn't follow the discussion that occurred around your module and 
don't know what the issues were, but I personally don't see any problems 
with commercial associations as long as they are kept in the open. In 
fact, I think it is healthy for people to be able to make money with 
free software.

MS-SQL support would be a fantastic thing for Drupal to have, as would 
Oracle and DB2 support. Anybody who would shoot these down has their 
head in some Gnu's butt.
