Right.  *BSD is somewhat hypocritical in this regard -- GPL code _is_
distributed, but it's kept in a non-modified form in /gnu.  In their
defense, they keep the GPL'd code to the minimum possible and replace GPL'd
code as soon as a BSD'd replacement becomes available (NetBSD is relacing
GNU tar with pax, for instance).

I was trying to keep it simple ;)
