Thread drift has happened as it always does, but the thrust of my
remarks has been to offer advice about the prudence of using BitKeeper
*as a development tool* under the gratis license to my fellow Debian

I posted as much of an exegesis of the BK gratis license as I have any
plans to do on debian-devel-announce already, and that was only a means
to the above end, to justify my urging of caution.

Please disregard this message if you weren't actually complaining about
my messages in particular.
