Quoting from the Pine FAQ (http://www.washington.edu/pine/faq/legal.html#10.2):
In particular, the earliest Pine licenses included the words: "Permission to
use, copy, modify, and distribute this software... is hereby granted," but
some people tried to pervert the meaning of that sentence to define "this
software" to include derivative works of "this software".
So, apparently the Pine license also used the word "and." Hmmph.
