I'll need runoff.7 in the future.  For historical information, you can look
there later on.  The program will be published unter savannah nongnu.
I'll report it here when the program will be finished.

GPL2 is logical, GPL3 is bullshit from `above'.  Debian succesfully fought
against GPL3 for years.  Everything using GPL3 and FDL became non-free and
was hidden in normal Debian publications.

You should know more details about that.
No thanx - bye-bye GPL3, GPL2 is the real free software base.
