Who says it isn't? If you want to dedicate a program you wrote to
someone who inspired you to write it, or who came up with some of the
ideas that you put in there, why shouldn't you associate their names
with the program just as much as yours? Likewise if someone supplied
your bread and water while you were off doing the writing?

Hans obviously feels the contributions his sponsors played in getting
reiserfs written and maintained was very important. Why do you think
you know better?
