Hi All,

I'm trying to get my mind around the ins and outs of the granted GNU

-- so as to allow that tool to craft "non-free" output.

Are there any pointers where I might look for more info into this?

Plus, what other software titles have "exceptions? I'll then look up the
license-specifics. Or, please consider sending me an off-line email examples
of those license exceptions you have easy access to. I'll summarize and
