Transvirtual depends on the ability to relicense their AWT under
non-GPL'd terms to companies that are unable to use GPL'd code.  If
the FSF were to relicense the AWT under libgcc-like terms, this would
undercut that stream of revenue for Transvirtual.  Transvirtual has
contributed a good deal of code to the free software community, and
the FSF therefore decided upon a course of action that would harm
neither the free software community nor Transvirtual.  The AWT was
therefore excluded from the libgcj merger agreement.
