As soon as you accept code from others, you can consider it what you want, but, it's open source at that point, and requiring a license is just silly.  Yes, you are more than free to sell it, but, so are others.

I just allow people to study and change the code as an added bonus (and hopefully TextMate will benefit long-term from community activities, at which point we may reconsider how we should go about “selling” it).
