I think you do Scott a grave discredit by <snip>ing the rest of his

have Chris stay with the Project, but that, like several of us have
already said, he does not consider Chris's contributions worth saddling
NetBSD with an unworkable licensing scheme.

This is _exactly_ the sort of ad hominem attack that I objected to in
your last post, albeit on a much more offensive scale.
