I don't run to the IP laywers for each iteration of the IBM license
agreement, nor do I run to the OpenBSD people to ask for their opinion.
I would need to hear really good reasons before I change this
position. I don't care if one flavor of "you must release source
code" is better than another flavor. If I had the choice it then
would be the same BSD licence that I slapped on my older tools.
