That's a great example, Paul. Not sure I see it fitting our legal discussion
(which has more complex dimensions), but I like how it clarifies the
importance of "point of view".

I'll desist from further debate on emacs-devel about licensure, however, since
I don't want anyone to confuse my opinions as an individual with my role as an
FSF project maintainer. I have no issue with Emacs choosing to use the GPL,
and have always licensed my own contributions to Emacs under the same.
