Don't worry Brendan, I won't start the fire here ;). You understand what I  
pointed out. It does matter if people add an official limitation to the  
GPL, but it doesn't matter if a coder doesn't add a limitation, but when  
people start to fork the unlimited GPLed software it became a fire on this  
and at least LAU too.

I'm happy that my main distro does include linuxsampler to the official  
repositories and I'm able to build it for other distros myself.

And, my main distro isn't Gentoo, there at least is a second distro with a  
similar policy as Gentoo and inexperienced user can get both Aelus and  
linuxsampler :p and it's good this way :).


PS: Cool people don't join a party at 18:30, let alone earlier :D.
