That's because I was attempting to point out potential problems in your
approach, not challenge your findings.

I think starting or ending an analysis with "well, I can't find anything
that directly contravenes the DFSG" is a risky approach to take.

DFSG-conformance is a necessary but not sufficient condition for a work
to be Free Software.

I didn't mean to give personal offense.
