   For years I've been asking everyone to demonstrate this objection is
   real by pointing me to a copy of the current for-sale Cygnus stuff up
   for ftp.  It hasn't happened yet.

Well, I think quite a few people have explained to you why it isn't
particularly likely.  What don't you believe about the explanation?

Perhaps I shouldn't bring up old business, but the last time we
discussed this on this mailing list, you pretty directly called me a
liar.  I never heard an apology or an explanation for that, not that I
expect one from you.
