That is the best way to look at it in my opinion. If I get a years worth use out of a $60 programs that comes out to $5 a month (very worth it). If there is a problem with keeping Jon well paid for his work, I would hope that, with some creativity, he can propose a way to keep going. A premium subscription perhaps to the latest and greatest updates before a general public release. This isn't just about the developer but also about the community and whether they are genuinely interested in investing into this project.
