Hi all. I'm sorry i haven't contributed anything to the
relative-import and python-path discussions of late, but
that's because so far i haven't had any ideas that have
crossed my threshold of being sufficiently insightful to
propose. I will follow the discussion with much interest.
I'm afraid i have to say that the revocation clause makes
me pretty uncomfortable. I know that it says CNRI will
revoke only on a "material breach", but i still have a
nasty suspicion that it sounds frightening enough to scare
many people away. I don't think we want that.
I suppose Greg's other points of contention are valid too
but it's really the revocation that bugs me the most.
