Okay, this is going to mess things up a bit more, but...

I *do* have a problem with BSD-licensed software; or, rather, I have a
problem with the BSD-style licenses (and all other
free-but-not-copyleft licenses).  That is, I have a problem with using
a free-but-not-copyleft license for anything I create, but I *don't*
have a problem with using other's softwares.

I'll even help with it, if I'm able.  Or steal from it, and make the
derivative copylefted, if possible.  If you think this is not much
better (if at all) than what some proprietary developers have done
(and are doing), I won't argue. That's just the way I do things.

Like (I think) I've previously said, I'll only share if you'd share,
but I won't let anyone else share.
