I have mixed feelings about that.  The Perforce people have been willing
for FreeBSD to use it free.  They're really nice about that, it seems more
than a bit discourteous to try to copy it.  If you'd asked to duplicate
MSWord, they're a unethical monopolist, I wouldn't have any scruples
attacking them, but I don't like attacking folks who've been displaying
towards free software such a friendly attitude.

Makes me (and I sure support free software!) feel like a predator when you
go after folks who've been doing good.

I think, if you want it fixed, you should go fix cvs.
