Resend, as I have to get out of "corporate mode". Don, ignore the

I wonder how the Bike Shed is coming along. And is Brett Glass a member
of that community?

Nick, I agree with you and others that the GPL won. It is in fact the
whole reason Free Software got a foot hold and most of it getting
slurped up into a commercial application and becoming closed.

Business Friendly says the BSD License(s) people... shyeah... right, it
is, but its not End User Friendly.
