Tolerant, perhaps - but that doesn't mean we encourage it. So, first
and foremost, I *will not* code anything that encourages people to do
this. And secondly, I generally will not buy anything that uses any
form of DRM. (There are a *very* few exceptions.) Frankly, I'd prefer
to pirate something and then make a donation to the author than buy it
with DRM.

So. no. No matter how wide the world is, I *WILL NOT* encourage the
use of this software.
