People made fun of Richard Stallman for 10 years because he insisted on putting free software into a proper legal framework. But I think many people now believe he was right to make a stance, and not make compromises. I think the extra license statements in multicol and listings are just plain silly, and don't know why the authors wasted their time on them. -- Sebastian Rahtz OUCS Information Manager 13 Banbury Road, Oxford OX2 6NN.
