I'd even be more than happy with a program a lot less powerful than 
O or Quanta. All I want for basic modelling is friendliness and "natural" 
tools.  Something as logical as vector graphics "art" programs. 
Stereo support is a must though.

Oh, yes, absolutely.

Well, to compensate for this one can sell licence on annual contract
basis, so that all customers pay you for as long as they use your
product. (That's basically what car dealers do :-)). I think everyone
can be happy this way.
