But if you read it in context, it says:

    1. The licensee agrees not to charge for the University of California
       code itself. The licensee may, however, charge for additions,
       extensions, or support.

So if we modify it - then it can go into the main distribution, since 
somebody who is charging for our version could conceivably be charging for 
our modification.

Aren't we modifying something when we package it?

Cheers,
