That certainly wasn't what I was saying, and I don't think it was what
Russ and the other board members were saying.  We've all said many times
that, if RSW's license is OSD-compatible, it will be approved.  I do
recommend, however, that RSW seek an attorney's advice.  I recommend
that to everyone who wants to "roll his own" license.
