I have an oppourtunity in which a guy is offering me a 10% cut of all
software sales in return for 6 months of programming effort.

I would like to know if this is a reasonable cut, and if not, what
a typical cut is for a contract programmer who works on percentage of
sale basis (rather then a salary or a flat bid)
