All, esp. Sam & Rick:

Sorry to be pedantic, but after looking at the OSI-approved RPL, it is obvious
it restricts internal use:

1.2 "Deploy"... includes without limitation, any and all internal use or
distribution of Licesned Software within your business or organization other
than for research and/or personal use...

In fact, Technical Pursuit freely admits it is "perhaps more viral than the
GPL".

It's a shame it's a company-specific license and no word about GPL compatibility
(I would guess it is not compatible since this is an additional restriction to
GPL).
