One small point, not really relevant to the rest of your posting.  There
are people on this list who argue that you can't do that under the existing
copyright regime: once in copyright, always in copyright until expiration
(assuming we ever *have* a copyright expiration again, that is).

You are a child of the universe no less         John Cowan
than the trees and all other acyclic  
graphs; you have a right to be here.
