We wouldn't have a GPL and all the related software without some
little crusade now and then. Software (especially of the "free as in
freedom" kind is just a tool, not a purpose.

Said this, I hope I have already (re) explained completely what my
"insting" actually is in the other reply I sent a few minutes ago.

I have no problems to face critics, otherwise I wouldn't come out with
such ideas on a forum with my real name and email address. However, I
honestly believe I, you and others are starting to repeating
ourselves. I am at least, since I _have_ said everything I had to say
and explain.

So, unless there is some really new comments or requests, I'll stop
here. Of course, everybody interested in continuing the discussion
privately is welcome to contact me.
