Sure; and I'm as proud as a Mum of our team and our ** inspired **
community. Methinks poor old Bruce and the core PG folk are sadly
belaboured by the BSD licence. At least, under our licensing, if people
make and sell closed source distros of Firebird, they are known to be
double-crossing our developers. Under their licence, they are being
double-crossed and it is allowed. Double-crossed and double-whammied,
since the same commercial firms appear to be head-hunting PG's core devs.
