I disagree. DFSG 4 was, as I understand, drafted with explicit
reference to the situation with TeX, which is similar in many ways.
At any rate, I am satisfied that the file name issue is not a problem
with the DFSG because of the file redirect thing that is also a part of
LaTeX. I intend to pursue getting some language into the license to
reference that specifically.
Is there anyone else who objects? Walter, will you yield if you stand
alone on this matter?
