Oh, I have plenty to do, rest assured.  I just happen to place a higher
priority on licensing issues than other people and/or don't choose to
paper over them and pretend they don't exist.

Note that it's a complete myth that people in general or you in
particular do not care about licensing issues.  Here's a quick proof:

  Mike, why don't you pass along the Flash source, I'd like to have a

See?  You don't care as long as you assume you can (safely) ignore the
consequences.  Other people will have different estimations of risk.
