The procmail rules I have in my home directory are not part of the OS
and are not free software.  I don't feel it's important to share them.
That doesn't mean they aren't software -- it just means they aren't
*free* software.  Last I checked, the FSF also defended the user's right
to create software locally without enforced sharing.
