Or, in the case of giving away several copies of binary CD1, with the
required offer of GPL source, I have to generate and keep the entire
source set for three years.  (Doing so is less labor than figuraing
out exactly what sources I need.)  Anyone giving the CD to a freind
has the same obligation.

Oh well, I had hoped not to have to tie up my DSL line for that long.
