If one expression is part-determined by another expression, the
abstraction, filtration and comparison (AFC) test would suggest
it's derived and it's not "clean room" nor independent creation.
At the extreme, one could even argue from the AFC test that part
of the second expression doesn't have any other copyright.

However, I asked what your position on this was. The AFC test was
still controversial last I checked. You seem to have few views
beyond anti-GNU spam spam spam spam lovely spam! wonderful spam!
Do you do useful things?
