Not really. You either use tools and standards that other people
before have developed, and agree to their terms and give them
due credit where appropriate, or re-invent the wheel all over
again. That's not sad at all, that's fair trade. How would you like
it if a "customer" (maybe I'm alone in this but I've never worked for
a company that paid Sun a dime for the JDK itself) came up to you
and said "I want to redistribute your product and not only that I
want you to re-engineer it so that it works to MY specifications, and
if you bill me I'm going to tell you to get lost."
