I agree.  However, I want to be sure of the continuance of FM, and I 
think even a small bit of "profit" should be made on each book.  (If 
there's an issue of not wanting to "make a profit", it's probably better 
to think of it as maintaining services.)  So even something like a 1% 
profit that benefits especially FM would be desirable for continuance of 
services.  Unless there's something I'm missing and providing FM 
services is already either self-sufficient or free?
