"The chorus crying about the exclusion of SQLNinja has nothing at stake,
nothing at risk if Fedora ships SQLNinja. On the other hand, Fedora as a
project under Red Hat's wing can expose the parent company to legal risk —
not to mention risk to its reputation. Imagine for a moment the headlines
about Red Hat shipping a SQL Server takeover tool in Fedora 15, especially
if it actually is *used* to conduct an attack of any magnitude. If you want
to get on the slippery slope, Red Hat and the Fedora Board have very good
reasons for rejecting SQLNinja."
