	Is there a quorum for using an unmodified GPL for one option?
 How do we recncile the fact that the database it self shall *not* be
 distributed at all, just reports are generated and distributed? Can
 we use the GPL in that case? 

	Oh, the internal representation of the database is likely to
 be quite different (currently it is not a Packages file like
 format, it is considerably more compact). It may move to a real DBMS
 later (PostgreSQL?), if such is indicated.
