By the way, this text seems to be gone. (There are still some bogus
trademark claims on that page--IANAL, but I doubt a trademark allows
them to prevent people from using "sql-ledger" in domain names as long
as the use isn't confusing--but they probably don't affect the software,
or at least the name could be removed if it became a problem.)
