Please do not find me guilty by association.
I'm sorry to say it but I don't think Brett Glass
have helped my case at all, rather the opposite,
because it seems obvious that many people seem
to have a hard time seperating the various anti-LGPL

I personally do not hate the GPL nor GPL-style licenses,
I think they have a place in the world, but that place
is not nessarily in the Wine project.

I have tried to explain why throught countless mails
so I will not do it again, just say that I'm
not in the I-hate-the-GPL-club rather in the
I-don't-think-your-understand-the-price-you-have-to-pay-club or
the I-don't-wish-to-pay-the-price-club if you prefer.

I have never said that.
I do admit that Brett Glass have said that.
However _I_ do not agree.
