They were shipping something that they marketed as Perl,
which behaved differently than Perl, had been integrated
into other projects, and for which Larry Wall had little
or no input.  If you do not see that as violating Larry's
artistic control, then our understanding of artistic
control is so different that we might as well not be
speaking the same language.

Had ActiveState done everything that they did except
called their product "winperl", I would have had little
or no objection to their actions.
