Hi Stuart,

According to the prevailing interpretations of ChucK's software license,
the GNU General Public License version 2, youre pretty much in the clear
for all of these. Speaking personally as a ChucK developer, we are happy to
see people build complete systems/art projects using ChucK. And its
completely reasonable to pursue a monetary incentive to support these and
future projects.

In short, rock on!
