<expletive deleted>, SF is providing you a service for *FREE*. And
nobody is forcing you to use it. I could not care less if they rejected
me because my left eye has a lower vision than my right eye; shrug and
move on.

Now, here we're talking. SqF has a server, and we're setting up CVS on
it. And the difference between 'SqF' and 'SF' is small enough so that
no-one will notice ;-). 

I'll see what I can do - even though I've been using CVS since it was a
bunch of shellscripts around RCS, it's been a while since I setup a
server so I need to review some docs, etcetera.

No, there is a (IMHO) very important extra bit, which is the requirement
that changes to the 'core' have to be published. I think that this is a
very sensible thing for Squeak, and, again IMHO, makes SqueakL (apart
from the warts) more appropriate than MIT/BSD.
