And I agree with the Free spirit of the GPL.  I honestly didn't see  
what was going on (what I was doing) from the perspective of being  
counter to this until Ethan pointed it out as he did;  I'm very glad  
I emailed and was educated.  I'm correcting it immediately and won't  
make a similar mistake in the future.  While quantity doesn't  
particularly matter, I'm very glad that I asked about this in the  
context of a very limited release beta build rather than after making  
the same mistake with a release.

I'm disappointed with myself at this point.  Looking backward, it's  
perfectly clear to me now that I was, indeed, violating the  
intentions of us (that is, the Gaim/Pidgin development team) and more  
generally not being "straight" in an environment in which basically  
nothing else is more important.

I hope you both (and everyone else whose trust I was inadvertently  
pushing) can forgive me and move forward.
