Your points Ernie are well taken and I agree that it would be better
as a commercial enterprise to take one of the OSI approved licenses
instead and use this only for 'community' work, which I now understand
is not the province of this venue.  I will have to review those here and 
present them to my partners and then debate their various merits.  
I think that will take some time, and since our commercial open-source
product will not be available until late fall 2004 we do have some time.

Thanks so much, you have been most helpful.

Best Regards
