a) If you whine loud enough, you will get what you want.
b) RMS is making up his interpretation of the GPL as he goes
c) Debian will still not ship KDE, because now they believe RMS's strange idea that we need "forgiveness". Addition: I asked RMS where specifically in the GPL it says anything about forfeiting rights. Because I sure can't find it :-P
All in all, a crappy day for free software.
