Will you TAKE THE TIME TO READ WHAT I WRITE?  Gods, I thought I just said
that given written permission from AbiSource, preferably in the form of
an exception in the top of their files where they tell you the thing is

Instead you'd rather try to piss off one of the few people out there who
would defend your efforts.  Great strategy.
