Because some open-source contributors are generous sharers rather than
generous givers, and are willing to let you make use of their source code
only if you are willing to let them make use of yours.

Yes, chili in the eye is bad, but so is your    John Cowan
ear.  However, I would suggest you wash your    cowan at ccil.org
hands thoroughly before going to the toilet.    http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
