In this day and time David, you never can tell when some libtard might 
take the A.D.A. seriously enough to hire a lawyer who never heard of the 
GPL. If he is worth his hourly, he will read up on it, then go shoping 
for a co-operative judge. One thing I've learned in my 84 years is to 
rarely say never.  Somewhere there's an idiot plotting how to make some 
money from a lawsuit.  He has the mistaken idea its better than working 
for his 3 hots and a cot under a roof. I'm 200% with you, but I'd hate 
to see what little income debian purports to have, wasted on legal 
beagles.
