"BOTH SOURCE AND OBJECT CODE ARE MADE FREELY AVAILABLE WITHOUT CHARGE"
I don't know if that is GPL compatible; you can sell GPL binaries, you
just have to give your customer the source code if they want it (and if
the customer wants they can do what they want with it, e.g. publish that
source on the net for everyone else).
Also I don't like the fact that any changes I make to the code become
"property" of CSRIO, even if it is easy enough to keep nn as a function
in separate file.

Maybe he is happy with a GPL or dual-GPL license agreement with GRASS.
