yes, that's the point... can i tell "all the stuff you need is out  
you can do the same by your own" ?

yes, i do not want to develop proprietary software

i believe in freesoftware, but i have to live and take bread at home

and i want to do it in an "ethical way" as much as possible

can i do with gpl3? i'm legal? that's my question

p.s. sorry by now, but i must write code, or my customer,
who is reading this list, will not pay me... :) i'll be a silent  
lurker too...
