        Rubbish. The opinion I have seen bandied around is that the
 two issues are a problem with the GFDL, and have been acknowledged as
 such by the FSF, and are going to be fixed real soon now
 ™. Pragmatically, it does not make sense to remove documentation that
 only has these issues, only to turn around and move them back in.

        The GR sounds more like a sore loser GR.

I have seen the future and it is just like the present, only
longer. Kehlog Albran, "The Profit"
