Well, I mailed John Carmack already, and you say you will, so that's
a couple, at least. I alerted him to the fact that id's license
makes what's going on currently illegal.

I just checked lxdoom's src directory. The only file that isn't
(C) id is l_musserver.c, which is GPL. I don't think it's linked
into the lxdoom binary, though - it is for the music server, and
as far as I can see it's not referenced in the makefile.
