Many of those competing formats are far worse, especially when
weighted by volume, but might it not be conceded that some are
better for such interchange?   \smiley;

Question:  Would a reconciliation with FSF and Debian on the "free"

GNU/Linux systems?   Is LPPL obstructing distribution that we would
like to see?
