This is straying into a discussion on the "merits" and/or lack thereof
in commercial software developers using the GPL. Something which has
been explicitly avoided in this discussion and has, in my opinion,
allowed for technical discussion in regards to the proposal to proceed
without getting bogged down in "personal preference" discussions.

If possible, I'd like it to continue without straying into the area
where flame-wars are prevalent. Please.
