Well, no, they're not. If they were, that'd be great, but as it happens, we have to care
about under what terms we use the code that we use, and if the licenses aren't compatible, we
can't use it.

when DTrace already exists, while refusing to even discuss the SOLE reason why they saw the
need to bother!
