There has already been some private discussion about replacing bc/ 
dc.  I do not know the heritage of the OpenBSD versions, but Anders  
Magnussen was looking at the now-freed-up old AT&T versions.  I'll  
let him elaborate further.

I think we're all looking forward to have a less-GPL-polluted system.
