Hmm, I guess you won't like what I just posted. Sorry, my modem based
connection sends email before it downloads what's new.
Why I believe X is because I believe A, B & C. To explain why I think
X is correct requires explaining A, B & C which in turn can recurse
downwards. This can take some time but is where the real fruit of
these kinds of discussion are borne. It's also why I keep it off list
as for those not interested, it's very tedious.
If you want it short, you won't get past me saying "GPL is bad" and
everyone else probably saying "GPL is good". That gets no one
anywhere except knowing what we've already established.
Back off list?
