I spoke about most DDs. That people not caring about freedom find the
idea of freedom ridiculous is nothing new.
And, for the record, there are already references to the desert island
test in 2002 (see http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2002/01/msg00010.html
for example). And I doubt that will be the youngest version of that...

scientists in the jungle, or things like that...)
