No, Alex. I don't think so ... or i'm also an extremist ;-)
Most of others open-source conference are like that.
Maybe just idealists like most of the people of the open-source 
movement. Right now, with his licence, Squeak is no usable in some 
country like Cuba, so it could be an ethic problem for some of us.

Yes, it can be a solution.

Can the croqueters tell us if the licence of Croquet is only for the 
extension or cover also Squeak ? It's not clear in the licence page.
