There's no doubt owners reluctant to pay anything on speculation but would be eager to purchase after it's proven and reported for specific improvement by you pioneers.
This price should logically be greater than what you paid.
For a fully tested and proven working update, I would pay. I have been working in the database world for the last 4 years and have risen into consulting. I work with developers on a daily basis as well as am learning coding in the database I work with. My experience with things like this is they often have bugs during internal and predeployment user acceptance testing due to the developer not being able to put the work through everything an end user will. It is just the nature of the beast. He sounds like a good guy though.
