It's unclear to me what falls under 3 and what falls under 4: it seems
as if 3 is for all modification and distribution--it mentions
"executables"--and 4 is for distribution of binaries only.  However, 4
seems more restrictive than 3; it doesn't have the "freely available"
option.  So, I'm a bit confused.
