comment Forking an application for an “enterprise” customer
Thanks for the comments. I'm in it for the money, no doubt about it. I think I've made my decision.

comment Forking an application for an “enterprise” customer
Thanks for the suggestion. I asked my question because I had a hunch there were approaches I wasn't thinking about, and this is an approach I wasn't thinking about. I don't doubt that this way might be better technically, but I wonder if it also might take more of an up-front investment, which would be more of a business risk. (Could be wrong. Frequently am.)

comment Should I break contract early?
Fortunately for you, "As this is my first contract, I imagine getting the next one will be hard without a reference" is probably way wrong. As long as you're a competent self-marketer, other work can be found easily and without hiding your past.

comment How can I maintain a SQL schema upgrade that goes out to our users on a regular basis?
+1. It may be worthwhile for you to check out how Rails' migrations work. Martin Fowler's Evolutionary Database Design article (martinfowler.com/articles/evodb.html) may also be helpful.

comment Is it a bad practice to modify code strictly for testing purposes
I know. I thought I addressed your main point in my second paragraph, with a "yes".

I didn't mention these things in my answer, but I totally agree. Reworking your code to be more testable tends to have several happy side effects.
