That's why I'd gladly switch to a free pine clone.
What I wanted to say is that I don't want to spend my *free* time
into learning the usage of a *free* program if I'm allowed to use
a *non-free* program for "free" (here free means, that I am allowed
to use pine for my purpose without having to pay money and, yes, I
know your definition of free and I like it, but it was for the
nice play of words).

The intention of my mail was to say that in my opinion it would be
more important to clone pine than to discuss if we should clone pico
or not.  Even a free pine using the non-free old pico would be
better than using the non-free pine with non-free pico, right?

Kind regards


Send with pine, edited with vim ... because I like free editors :).
