This idea crops up from time to time. I can tell you right now that
there's _lots_ of interest, including from many people who don't even
know what Linux is.

The limiting factor, IIRC, is that Aboriginal-style dot paintings are
as seen to be the reserve of native Aboriginal artists. I think this
is just a social matter of courtesy rather than the result of any
legislation. Nevertheless, non-Aboriginal use of such a style is often
frowned upon.

If anyone else has more information on this, I'd be glad to know.

Bring choice back to your computer.
