We do that take into consideration but we haven't shipped non-free directly
or found ways to provide it to them via our software application just
because the users have asked for it and they did ask for it repeatedly over
a decade and many of them are redistributable or we could have negotiated a
licensing agreement.  What changed now?  Or, if we go the other end of it,
why aren't we shipping it directly?
