    I agree with this. If you give a tax break for each open source item you release, a company would just break up their circuit board into multiple pieces and release each peice for an increased tax break. But if it was a tax break for each item that your company sells that you also release as open source, and the size of the tax break was proportional to the amount of product you sell, then it might be more effective. Something like you get a $0.05 tax break for each item you sell that you also release as open source, then there would be an incentive to release as open source major projects.

No public wish lists :(
