	Yes, a few incidents could be critical in determining public
	I read that Debian considers GPL and Artistic to be free.  But the
Artistic license is supposedly less restrictive than GPL.  Maybe there is
not complete consensus on these issues.  I am really enchanted with the
notion of GPL style freedom-- perhaps this is more of an opportunity to
promote these ideals.  (He said the license distinction would be clear.
And GPL is plastered all over Debian/GNU linux.) 
	If there is some potentially bad scenario that this
CD deal could evolve into that I just don't see-- what is it ?
