	There are at least two dangers in messing with the Squeak license.

1.  Apple has forgotten about Squeak.  If we bring it to their 
attention, there is a great probability that they will try to revoke 
the current Squeak license.  Even if they can't do this legally, they 
can put enough doubt into air that companies and groups will be 
hesitant to use Squeak for major projects.  I strongly discourage you 
from contacting Apple.

2.  One of the best features of the current license is that 
commercial development on top of Squeak is OK.  Any move to change 
this is a big step backwards.

(Please explain in plain English the thing you are trying to 
accomplish by changing the Squeak license.)
