This is the point. Paul has had to compromise a lot more for Ardour than 
we would by him allowing a Licensing feature into Ardour. Anyone who 
thinks the compromise isn't worthy of Paul's sacrifices needs to adjust 
their thinking.

This is not about Ardour. It's about making it viable for Paul to keep 
working on Ardour.
