They have made it so at this point you can distribute pine freely if you
mark derived versions as such on CDs.  Note they SPECIFICALLY say that you
can do it on CDs.  They never say you can do it elsewhere such as ftp,
http, magnetic tape, zip disks, et al.  This is clearly a stupid oversight
on their part.  It could be fixed if someone had the time to approach
them.  (I no longer do.)

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Internet users who spend even a few hours a week online
at home experience higher levels of depression and loneliness than if
they had used the computer network less frequently, The New York Times
reported Sunday.  The result ...  surprised both researchers and
sponsors, which included Intel Corp., Hewlett Packard, AT&T Research and
Apple Computer.
