Well, Ion(tm) 2 is clean and proper LGPL, so it's not bad, but I agree
that we shouldn't have to care about complete nutballs.
Of course, we still have djbwares around, which have a weird licence for
the exact same reasons Ion3(tm) has that licence. See my point about
We also have the choice of renaming the package; e.g. Fion, which I'm
sure my fellow countrymen will appreciate.
I wouldn't stop using Ion(tm) (2, I've never had any use for 3), but I
wouldn't mind having the package in local. The only maintaining it
needs is for infrastructure changes anyway. I'm speaking of wm/ion; my
personal opinion is that wm/ion3-devel should simply be dropped.
