you did not got it completely, I think. This all is how free software
works. Look at Lindows, look at Corel... You have not specified the license
of your code, so you are on the better way. You can still fix your problem
by defining the license of your code to be GNU GPL to comply with my and
Hugh's (at least) requests.

I do not have a comment here. I personally can not even imagine doing such
bad things like you said. I have the same reasons for this as for not
trying to steal 1Mio $ from the bank here in Prague... You probably miss
something. So I do not have more to say to you.

You do not have a choice here, sorry. But this was your choice. You did
not read the license agreement and used our code.
