Please don't read too much into my remark, as I don't like to engage in
license ideology debates.   I like GPL, BSD, and all the zillions of other
open source variants.  In my pre-coffee mental haze this morning, I didn't
phrase it in such a way to denote that it was mostly a toungue-in-cheek
comment about the motivation to replace the venerable gcc from the base
system (which, for technical reasons, I personally feel to be a worthy
goal).
