and it prohibits commercial use:

c.The use of the SAINT-US is limited to your internal, non-commercial use
only. The use, compilation, installation, modification, maintenance or
operation must be performed by employees of your organization. If you
require assistance from outside your organization, the SAINT-US and source
code are considered "commercial" and not eligible under this license

Personally I think this is unfair against Dan and Wietse to restrict the use
of the software that much (without adding realy much new code), but I have
talked to Wietse and he said that he does not care which licensing others
place on derived work (as long as the derived work has a new name).


PS: there will be a short article about saint in the upcmming issue of the
