I was asked for my opinion, here it is. I feel the GFDL is "free enough"
for my heart does not beat for the bureaucratic following of iron rules
but for the sake of our users. And our users are not just the readers of
GFDL-licensed documentation but also their authors, and they deserve
freedom, too. This is why I made this very selection and this discussion
ends here.
