To me, advertising is against the spirit of Pidgin, but that's a touch feely
thing I can't substantiate.  MXit make millions off their mobile advertising

To clear up some legal issues, am I allowed to take MXit's source, remove
the advertising, repackage the plugin (for Windows and other operating
systems) and host it on my own site? Of course I'll provide the modified
source as well.  Or do I have to look at MXit's license for the answer?
