Thats a good example.

If someone were to stick *all* of FG onto CD / DVDs and sell it, there is 
added value in terms of the bandwidth saved (What is FG now? 12GB or more inc 

Of course, anyone doing so would need to make clear that FG is GPL software 
and freely available on-line. This is rather like the Open-Office.org 
resellers guidline policy.

matter; it must surely be a shrinking market with the uptake of broadband.
