Hey ZLegLogos,

also, sometimes it pays to learn a new technique for a client, both for them and also because that might be something new clients might be interested in. Bittorrent or streaming media in PHP, for example. it's not entirely fair to assess them for it -- not to mention their balking at it -- but the alternative is never to offer such a thing until it gets "paid" for. that doesn't seem like the right way to go.

I think you'll find most of the Webmaster's here feel the same way. They'll learn and implement a new technology for their customers, but will bill them based on the normal amount of time they'd spend with a similar Technology they already know. They don't feel the customer should pay for their learning experiences unless it's something they're positive they'll never use/do again.
