That’s why we could have a category for them, to make clear that
they are *NOT* precedent.

(Classifying “new works are not Open Source” is a bit problematic,

Solange man keine schmutzigen Tricks macht, und ich meine *wirklich*
schmutzige Tricks, wie bei einer doppelt verketteten Liste beide
Pointer XORen und in nur einem Word speichern, funktioniert Boehm ganz
hervorragend.		-- Andreas Bogk über boehm-gc in d.a.s.r
