It's not RMS who's holding up Oracle's and Sun's takeover.  It's the EU
competition regulators.  What RMS has written to these regulators will have,
at most, a tiny effect on their decision.  Your annoyance is probably
genuine, but I suspect it's more to do with RMS in general than this
particular letter of his.  My sympathy goes out to all Sun employees, and
I hope things work out for them.
