No. Rather non-US. With non-free, we have the same export problem. And
if there's another problem that forces us to put Squeak to non-free, the
result would have to be non-US/non-free.

I don't think that the indemnification clause is a problem at all
(otherwise I would have written it in my original report). In the case
described by the clause 5, we could refer Apple (or whoever) to the
clauses 3 and 4 (about disclaimer of warranty and limited liability).

Unfortunately, nobody commented my concern about clause 6 (regarding
discrimination against persons or groups).
