For all that I dislike censorware, the author needs to understand that
conditions like this do *not* belong in licences. I don't think his
goals are compatible with the project's until he does.

What next? "You may not use this gcc to compile censorware programs?"
"You may not compile things I disapprove of against this glibc?" If you
have any contact with the author, please try to make him understand.
