After the way I flamed at Joerg to get him to put the GPL on his driver, it's
embarassing that he should be abused this way.

As your friendly list administrator can I please ask that this be
taken to private mail between the parties directly involved. The
problem is known, and it can only be worked out amongst those
involved. Thanks ;)
