Oh, I actually didn't mean to suggest Section 1983 was relevant to OSI
or to licence review.  In that sense, I really shouldn't have posted the 
comment here.  I just happened to have been studying the subject for its

Sorry about the digression.

Cheers,                  In time of crisis, people do not rise to the occasion;
