Indeed. Some of us have been expecting that Dan would soon just invent
DJBnix and get it over with -- especially after OpenBSD kicked out his
packages after getting tired of the licensing hassle. (_Man_, the Theo
versus Dan pissing match was fun to watch!)

Thanks, I actually made a special point of compiling a list of excellent
alternatives to all known DJBware, in 2001, after Dan made some rather
unpleasant noises that sounded a bit like legal threats, about my
Web page explaining why I don't like using his software.
