To be fair, we're now some way from your original comment. We've gone 
from "rival companies copying GPL'd programs is exactly what FIC want" 
to "rival companies wouldn't be *able* to copy GPL'd programs because 
the porting cost would be prohibitive". The first comment I disagreed 
with, the second I'm in full agreement. And I'm glad we talked it over!

And I very much look forward to FIC building good business on open 
source software!
