I don't think the issue at that time was that they revoked the prior
license, but that we generally try and cooperate with the providers
of software.  If someone doesn't want us working with them, why
should we?

Also, if I recall correctly, there was a gnu project to write a pine
replacement, but I don't know where that stands.  Probably it's
not complete because of a lack of development effort.
