i guess to take effect when communicator 5 is announced.  from my friend
in engineering, he has to figure out what 3rd party s/w is in the tree,
and extract it; convince the vendors to relase source; or build
libraries for people to compile.

the big one is Java, which is free for non-commercial use, but Sun has a
restrictive license on it (which they deny of course).  he says his plan
is peer pressure on them to a good thing. 

what kind of double check do you want?  i thought Yahoo press releases
were considered defacto truth....
