Well, I'm not a lawyer and I'm certainly not volunteering to be counsel
for Messrs. Olson et al.  But I can recognize a troll when I see one.
More to the point, this is an attack on a fundamental piece of open
source infrastructure, and I'm quite sure that a lot of large companies
will be stepping up to help ensure that it stays open.

I feel no need for us to do anything, until and unless there's an
adverse court ruling, which I fully expect there will not be.  And
if there is, we won't be the only ones looking for an alternative
