If you say so. I think its ok -- and suspect that competent counsel
would agree. If you are not inclined to ask, however, trust your
feelings, and good luck. In the meanwhile, since you seem to feel
that until you get bonded by Disney to use Squeak you can't do so,
and it is unlikely in the extreme that will happen, there isn't much
point to continuing this discussion. Perhaps you shouldn't use
Squeak, or Python, or Pearl, or Tk/Tcl, or Windows 2000, or whatever.
Patient: Doctor! Doctor! It hurts when I do this! (moves arm up and down)
Doctor: OK. Don't do that.
