Reply-To is the where private replies go, yes--but From is where mailers
pull your name from, to put them in mail indexes and (above) quote headers,
so it's what everyone sees.  I see messages from Rich, Francesco, Martin,
Joel ... and "OSS".

My license to distribute isn't revoked--my distribution to you (due to
your mirroring of my server) is not a violation.  However, it seems
like the license *you* receive as a result is the new, changed license,
so you don't get a license to redistribute--you never had one to begin

I'm not sure; part of the license says I'm allowed to sublicense, after
all, and I have no idea how that interacts with the "LUCENT ..." clause.
