Personally, blaming Raiko for the problem is missing the mark. Raiko was
asked to attach a problematic .ppt and did so. Given the discussion in the
bug, there should have been more oversight of the contribution. Someone
from POI should have verified with Raiko before the file was added to
Apache SVN. Simply relying on the bugzilla terms and conditions is not
sufficient...
