Though that's still the same thing, but different people.  Rather than
you making free with another's product, it's a third party doing the

Of course we'd all like to avoid having to buy overpriced special
spanners, special connectors, or spare parts.  While I do see both sides
of that equation, I've no sympathy for manufacturers that overprice and
restrict access.
