Apologies for top-posting.

ATM, I'm neither a user nor helper, but am willing to be both. As
stated earlier (I think), sometimes the licence information is missing
('Public domain'), this needs to be cleared-up and it could so easily
become FSF compliant at the 'stroke of a pen'.  If software freedom is
not of interest, then I'm sure M$ will be offering money soon to make
sure the Haiku project don't create any competition ;-).
