Minor off topic warning for me and Martin...
> GPL and freeware are _not_ compatible!
Well, I for one must disagree with that statement.
GPL is a (pretty) well defined _specific_ license. Freeware, shareware,
public domain etc are just different license forms in which the specific
license is what matters (and that can contain just about anything).
As such, freeware _can_ be most compatible with GPL!
(In the case of THTTPD I've found no license statement whatsoever...)
> Freeware only defines the price it don't define freedom.
In this I agree completely, though even if freeware implicitly defines price,
it can also explicitly define freedom!
I think we can all agree to that one should be very carefull, and in unclear
situations not do anything without the express written permission by the
author / copyright holder.
