Whoa! Those are not my words. I'm not quite sure whose they are.
My apologies. It appears I have destroyed the quoting somehow. Those
are the words of Stephen Ryan
<email@example.com> in Message-Id:
Well, I don't believe exec is a magic copyright barrier; instead, I
think we need to generalize _why_ we generally consider it be one.
But this leads me to believe that we may well be on common ground;
what generalization do you see there?
I see the generalization hinted to in the message I just posted: That
no copyrightable elements of programs like "grep" were derived from.
