Jaffa:

"Except the GPL doesn't allow you to distinguish based on usage, so commercial customers who don't want support can use it without paying a royalty."

Not directly. But it forces the GPL to be applied to all derived software which would limit its practical usage in many cases. So clients would use the commercial license.

The big question is how to reach potential commercial clients and by vastly increasing exposure whilst limiting usage, GPL can help with this.
