First of all, for most *users* Netscape is as free as Mozilla - they don't
pay a quid for neither, so? You wan't to politically educate the users,
teach them about the nuances of GPL/LGPL/Artistic/BSD and other licenses? If
so, fine - go ahead, but I'm afraid that software distribution isn't the
right media for such kind of education.
