I realize that.  But, at the very least, I wasn't aware of his
position before this came out however many months ago.  And what's
more, I think it's fair to say that he's taking a more obvious stand
on the issue than he did before.  Not that I'm saying that this is a
new agenda on his part or anything, but the licensing of documentation
has become a bigger issue than it once was.
