Nell, Just a request, please do not use the term "advertising clause"
This is a term that was created by the Linux bigots, specifically people like RMS who is so bigoted he can't see beyond the tip of his nose. It has never been "advertising" before to give credit to the authors of a software package until the pro-GPL-anti-BSD crowd came along. It has also never been a burden of any kind to include credit to UCB until people started to think it was because the GPL crowd told them. And many companies used BSD code without giving credit, and nobody cared. (for example, Microsoft who used plenty of BSD code including BSD header files that still had the BSD copyrights in them) I think it is either extremely mean-spirited to make a big deal over this or it is a subtle BSD-bash to do so. Nobody in the BSD community ever coined the term "advertising-clause" this was forced on us from without, and there is no reason to use it.
