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.)
