	This first sentence of my reply was that 'code was a secondary
concern'. I then described what I understood the implications to be,
mainly that MS  potentially owned any business-related information (for
example meeting minutes stored in a .net/hailstorm hosted groupware
application), and had the legal right to act on that information.
	The possibility of them taking ownership of GPL'd code was a
secondary consideration in this particular discussion, not in my general
worldview.  That's what I meant by scope.
