	 From what I've been reading this is exactly why people want to switch
to LGPL .. The LGPL is suppose to stop forks and prevent people from
harming the project (No value judgement here).. In the end your idea
would just hurt the project by polarizing everyone ..

	If we want to be effective we can't be divided .. Instead of Linux vs.
BSD it would be Wine vs. Wine ..

	And yes, I'm a WINE developer ..
