Uh.  Sure.  And OpenBSD didn't repeatedly integrate non-release versions
of ipf against it's author's explicit wishes.   And The 0 didn't dredge up
a LICENSE file from a non-release version of ipf and tell his harpies to 
flame Darren about it, firing the first shot, in point of fact, himself.  
No very public smear campaign was carried out against Darren or against ipf.  
Sure.  Right.  Whatever.  And The 0's never done anything like this before,
either.  Heh.

  foolish and bewildered and astray: can any man?
