If you manage to set up and get support contracts for James, that can
only be a good thing for James. I bet you are aware that there are two 
additional companies that provide support for PostgreSQL, GreatBridge and
RedHat. Commercial support for PostgreSQL has only attracted more developers 
and resulted in accelerated development of the PostgreSQL database. If the
same will happen for James, that is great. 

What is your intended market for James ? 

Are you going to compete with sendmail,qmail etc., do you want to compete
with POP and IMAP servers ?
