Well, I'm sorry that you decided to walk off of the project, but having walked off of projects myself, I understand and hope you get a rest.
I was distressed that you wrote about "seeing my laughing face when you looked at the code". I am not laughing at you. I didn't think of this dispute as a personal thing, just proper license procedure and the future potential of the program.
You also wrote that I did not invent the multi-call binary technique. I didn't claim to. But it doesn't come from gzip. I started working with C and Unix in 1981 at the NYIT Computer Graphics Lab, and the technique was in use at that time. My original work on Busybox was to provide 35 commands, mostly written by me, working from the Debian man pages.
