Code you wrote is YOUR code. You cam make everything with it.  If you
release it under GPL is still remains your and you can use it in commercial
programs. But, if you GPL your code, than people may contribute to it.
Those contribution become GPLed too, but it's not your code.  So if you
start to write commercial version based on not-just-released-by-you-under
-GPL code, you must carefully look which code is your and which is

Please correct me if I wrong.
