I have been reminded that I've probably caught Fade's cold, and maybe should not
be making project direction decisions right now.

But a non-lawyer giving legal advice to a guy who won't merge MIT licensed code
into toybox because of license compatibility issues, who walked away from
busybox maintainership because fighting Bruce reminded him too much of fighting
SCO and just took all the fun out of it, and who has collected links like
https://www.bell-labs.com/usr/dmr/www/otherunix.html for years? An australian
giving a US citizen advice about german (EU) trademark law.

It made me very, very tired. And headachey. And I'm going to step away from the
keyboard now.
