Small wonder they were going to sue: they might not object to people
shipping prebuilt pine binaries (but then again, as somebody pointed out,
they might as well), but they're not going to like people incorporating
their software (with *that* license!) into a GPLed project. What is the
equivalent of the proverbial rocket scientist in legal world? Well, here
clearly you don't need one ;-)

I'll have a look, if else for fun. Thanks.
Ok, I'm off to write UW... must remember asbestos underwear ;-)


Mä muistan sen kirkkaan päivän, sen kesän ja sen valon häivän
Heinä haisi, puut tuoksui, linnut lauloi vaan
Ja Lada ajaa kylän raitilla, Lada ajaa ja stereot soittaa
