Says who?

Doing cvs co wine today still gives me the old license wine, so I can use it, 
extend it and without giving a single line back - not now and not in the 

Of course - if I will do cvs co wine once the license will be changed - then 
I'll have to give back the modifications (some of them - at least according 
to the LGPL license)...

There is a difference, my friend...

Of course - TransGaming and CodeWeavers could co-operate internally by 
swapping code that CodeWeaver's or Transgaming is developing since each of 
them can re-license their code to whatever they want to license it under...
