Non-free clause from http://www.maiamailguard.com/license.php
reproduced here, for cc'ing to the RFP bug:

Henning Makholm          "Ambiguous cases are defined as those for which the
                       compiler being used finds a legitimate interpretation
                   which is different from that which the user had in mind."
