What I find interesting about this suggestion, as well as several of the
others I've seen in this thread, is the orientation toward avoiding a pure
Open Source play.  Maybe I'm being too much of a purist, but I'd really
like to use Open Source for everything I distribute.  (I'm not opposed
to proprietary software, as a general rule; this is just my preference for
the project I have in mind.)

I'm not familiar with that; could someone post a summary, in FSB terms?
