No, no, no. Transfer the copyrights of the Tim-bot & Martelli-bot to
Microsoft, the BFDL moves to OSDL which becomes aquired by Microsoft in as
swift turn about of face as their U-turn on the Internet. Python labs is
aquired by Lindows who acquire SCO once they've destroyed themselves, they
get infected by SCO Unix's viral Unix license (*) transmogrify into
SCO-TNG who then attack Microsoft who trounce them right royally in court,
but in a shock countermove are forced to buy everyone on the planet a pint
of their favourite beverage. Meanwhile the people working on open source
projects turn around and go "oh that's nice dear", and carry on working on
their pet projects.

Or something like that.


(*) SCO described it this way somewhere. Probably from a website, so it
    must be true. Definitely. Oh yes.
