NetBSD is used by various parties, so we can't tell if it is okay
for NetBSD project to ship Sun code or not. the fact that TNF
doesn't have any patent (which you have mentioned earlier) does not
help us decide, at all.
so for the TNF to serve people best, i think we should take the safest
approach - to avoid extra clause enforced by Sun. (or do you think it
okay to limit NetBSD users to those who are not affected by the clause?)
