Thanks for clarifying the redistribution issue - that goes a long way to 
help. However, there may be a few people who don't wish to or may be 
unable to redistribute it - the ASF is likely to be one of those.

Is there anything (e.g. IP constraints on the protocol) that would 
hinder the independent development of a alternative, open source, 
network driver?
