I wasnt pointing fingers: I am just saying we cant really take patches blindly and expect
them to work fine even if the licensing permits it.

I see that all days in other projects: in FreeBSD we can take patches from NetBSD and DragonFly
without asking for permission, but patches that work there dont necessarily fix issues in

As I see it neither AOO and LO will disappear and both projects will keep diverging and it
is not necessarily a bad thing.
