Alexandre, please read the archives before re-opening this thread. It
should come up in March every year, so you are two months late ;-P

Anyway, it looks like VRI has nailed this problem, that's why I
suggest moving to the Croquet codebase. Seems to me the shortest road
to a license that all the beancounting wankers out there will
appreciate (not that I really care, I just use Squeak, I don't write
legal essays about it... ;-)).
