Yup, completly agree.

Well, if it's music from Bach... - Bach died almost 256 (what a beautiful 
number :) years ago today, so I think his music is clearly free now.

And if you've made a new arrangement of the music and put this under a free 
licence, we would have _very_ similar sounding music for tuxtype, which 
complies with the DFSG. /me cheers!! :-))

Upstream is basically dead (noone is activly working on the code), as I wrote. 
Or to put it differently, I am upstream (I have svn commit access, I know the 
code a little bit and I'm in touch with some of the previous developers)...
