Dear list:

"The Open Source Definition seems to prevent a license from requiring 
commercial users to pay the authors of the software a fee . . ."

Thanks all very much for having discussed this. I'm the original poster.
I did not participate in the ensuing discussion but I lurked with much
interest. My knowledge on the subject did advance. As the issue was not
really settled, and it has many implications, it is my plan to prepare a
document on it, and post it here soon.

Thanks again,
