Hopefully I'm not hitting a sore spot here, but bring back
OpenSolaris and the answer becomes simpler. The Microsoft and VMWare
devs have similar challenges in this regard because if you attempt
to combine your proprietary software with our free software, then
it's not something we're going to be able to test upstream (and the
burden to prove that it's working and soundly maintained is
substantially greater than if what you're integrating is also free
