I seem to recall when I downloaded my version of Bitkeeper, that
the license you agreed to before downloading Bitkeeper was
different, and missing a clause that was in the license included
in the download.

Do a websearch for BKL, I seem to remember there were a number of
compliants in various forums about this...

I would hope that has been fixed now though. Has it?
