Actually we are now down to 3,078 lines, see below.

> unidentified lines of code -- not BusyBox  0.60.3. Remember

Note that the line count includes both '.h'-headers and '.c'-files. 

Headers contain zilch of copyrightable expression.

Note also that Best Buy distributed version 1.2.1 and not 0.60.3.

>From Kuhn's declaration:

"I inspected the commit logs stored at to
determine Erik Andersen's recorded contributions to BusyBox version
0.60.3 that were still present in BusyBox version 1.2.1. I found that of
the 8,868 lines of code Andersen added or was the last to edit in
BusyBox version 0.60.3, 4,884 remain unchanged in BusyBox version 1.2.1.
I also found that of the 5,794 lines of code that Andersen added or was
the last to edit in BusyBox version 0.60.3, excluding situations where
Andersen noted in the log that he was contributing a patch written in
part or in whole by another developer, 3,078 lines of code remain
unchanged in BusyBox version 1.2.1. In particular, I ran a computer
program that processed the author data associated with each line of code
contained in BusyBox version 1.2.1 files ending in ".c" or ".h" applying
similar criteria as described in ¶ 6 and ¶ 7 of this declaration, and
finding those lines where the author and timestamp data had not changed
between version 0.60.3 and version 1.2.1."

(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
