Geir, please stop saying that. Sooner or later, someone will quote you
on it.

Sun is trying to create a rift between "free software" and "free
software"! And we should continue to hammer that home into the heads of
the "all software should be free" crowd.

The rift goes between "GPL implementations of J2SE 6" and "GPL
implementations of J2SE 6, based on the OpenJDK code". We simply happen
to be on one side here, but the rift is not between "us" and "them". It
is between "them" and "them, as defined by Sun".
