Well, ideas are not copyrightable -- so unless you actually copy parts
of the talk (which is rather unlikely, considering that I never
published the files, nor was the talk recorded), I wouldn't have any say
in this anyways :-)

The thechnical details would be irrelevant of course to such an
audience. You could try selling it with other arguments though (which I
also mentioned in my talk): including the need for a pure GNU kernel;
the benefits of a GPLv3 option; and the fundamental idea of making user
freedom more practical at system functionality level.

However, I'm not sure it even makes sense to try selling to such an
audience in the present situation :-)
