This is some really neat work - and so easy.
For single shot (moving subjects, no tripod, etc.) raw photo processing can effectively give you similar results to these HDR methods with just one exposure. It's takes some experience and manual adjustment generally, but it can be pretty quick and has a lot of other benefits. I especially like LightZone which is not FOSS but has had some Linux releases. Lightzone also allows you to select areas.
And, no offense, but your results shot looks flat and lacking contrast. I think maybe your bright exposures are too bright. It would be interesting to try and just eliminate the 4-5 brightest and re-process.
The recently announced Pentax K20D, for one, offers an in-camera HDR blend function of multiple bracketed exposures.
