Favorite quote of the day:

	But Sontag said the BPF routines were not intended to be an example
	of stolen code, but rather a demonstration of how SCO was able to
	detect "obfuscated" code, or code that had been altered slightly to
	disguise its origins. The slide displaying the code should have
	been written differently to reflect that intention, he said.

In other words, those evil Linux hackers have been obfuscating BSD-licensed
code, and SCO's gonna do something about it.
