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.
