No because xfree actually writes the software that they release themselves,
so they can do what they want with them as much as they like. Corel didnt
write the stuff that they had the legalese about not showing anyone else
If it was freeware or bsd corel would have been home dry, the gpl tag is
the kicker than nails them down.
