        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

In principle, this should be a free software license as far as I can see.
It would call for study by a lawyer, however.

I recommend that anyone using this use it in parallel with GPL
3-or-later, as you have done.  That way, the program can't fail to be
free software.  And there is nothing to lose by doing this, since it
permits anyone to release a version with trivial modifications under
GPL 3-or-later at any time.

What do you think of making that recommendation?

Skype: No way! That's nonfree (freedom-denying) software.
  Use Ekiga or an ordinary phone call.
