The spirit always takes precedence in case there's a conflict. Some
people are just too fond of reading legal texts and toying with words,
and they start to miss that. Apparently, this conference's committee
is filled with such people.

I pity them. There's a Real World out there where exiting stuff
happens, and they let themselves be bound in a straightjacket of stuff
that's made up, for pete's sake, by lawyers.

But this will not help Stef getting his conference pass, I fear... 

Stef: why don't you twist it a bit and base everything on Croquet? The
only license I've seen on Croquet is open source even by the
definition of these people, and if you don't open the 3D stuff you
could almost think you're in Squeak...

(which brings me back to the point that, personally, I think we should
drop Squeak, grab Croquet, and start working from there. Let VRI and
HP deal with the license issues...)
