In fact, the only person that can demand anything wrt the LGPL is
someone that is running their software.  So if someone has bought
a copy of TurboLinux 11 in Japan, they have the right to demand
a copy of the source code to the Wine bits in Project David; presumably
they'd have to ask Turbo Linux.

Be great if someone would do that...
