Hi Russel,

It's with my laywers now.  Let's see what they have to say.

His initial impressions, and mine, seem to be that regardless of 
whether you apporve or disapprove of a 'rant', if the licence upholds 
the principles of free software then it is certifiable.

we'll see what mr fancy-pants lawyer says before I push this further. 
I believe I have until the last wednesday of the month before the 
board meets to review the APOSSL.
