Most of those checking out the code from TransGaming's CVS just want
to be able to get their Windows games to run in Linux for free (as in
beer). Personally, I think putting their ability to do so in jeopardy
just to make some ideological point that those users really won't even
care about is a little selfish, but perhaps that's just me.
In addition, in a post to -legal earlier today you opined that
software with a hostile upstream shouldn't be packaged in Debian. I
don't see how packaging TransGaming's software against their express
wishes could possibly fail to turn them against us. Your wanting us to
press ahead regardless does seem just a teensy bit inconsistent, to
say the least.
