I get the feeling that someone in this recent gambit has run headlong
into a patch of bindi's without thier shoes on...easy to get in....but
bloody painful to get out....!

Watershed?.......BIG maybe..."Watchpoint" might be a better adjective
for the moment....
Could be prudent to wait for the inevitable fine print and see if it
stands up to the FOSS communities scrutiny....somehow, I don;t think
it will....

This will be an interesting newsweek..:-)
