You kept yammering about the "EULA's" GPL terms. If you _weren't_ trying
to maintain that those terms somehow magically apply to the ISO contents
as if it were a work-in-itself (separate from title to the compilation
copyright), then what was your point?
I was making an honest effort to follow what you were saying, but some
of that stuff was a bit peculiarly worded, and I was in the middle of a
busy workday and had almost no time to spare. Right now, by contrast,
I have finally finished for the day (9PM), and -- hey! -- it's a holiday
(3-day) weekend. So, I sincerely intend no offence in saying this, but
I hope to ignore your entire pile of [non-]issues, get outside, and
enjoy myself. I hope you have a pleasant weekend, also.
Conor assures me that you're actually a good fellow, and you only come
across as a monumental prat through some horrible cosmic injustice, so,
tell you what: I officially owe you a pint of your favourite.
I also officially don't give a damn about the rest of your two recent
