Yeah, fair enough.  I was only saying that out of habit, and on the
basis that the DFSG are probably easier to interpret when trying to
decide if a particular license passes muster, for someone who is coming
to the issue cold, because they spell out the sorts of things that are
likely to make a license fail the FSF definition.
