It seems Florian has joined the ever growing team of Open Source luminaries, that fought a great victory in one battle, only to step right into some ridiculous position on some other opinion. Reading his explanation it seems to me, that the problem with bnetd is that it is bad for Blizzards business and the Blizzard people are his friends. I certainly don't buy the "server and client are an inseparable product" argument. Isn't that what Microsoft went to court for? Browser and OS is the same product. Better yet, browser and server is the same product, that's why IIS can do some nonstandard things.
While I do not know anything about bnetd it self, just by reading Florians own argumentation I can safely say: I don't know whether the bnetd guys are right, but I do know for certain that you are wrong, wrong and wrong. Sorry Florian.
