Perhaps you could ask New Riders to re-license the book under the OPL
without options?

Grokking the GIMP is a fairly old title, and they may have seen about as
much revenue from it as they're going to see.  Relicensing it freely
may give it a new lease on life.

What publishers often think will keep them from making money is often
what will help them make *more* money.
