Parent article: SCO ends another year
This turn of events with SCO seems to resemble the end of Faust, wherein Dr. Faust became more and more disturbed at having to live up to his part of the deal he made with Mephistopheles. (For those who do not remember, Dr. Faust sold his soul to be delivered later, for present worldly pleasure.)
