You know... the truth is that I don't really know what Marcus was
thinking (if at all) when checking GPL code into the OpenBSD repository.
But this is a great time to point out that it is human nature to give
more 'rope' in allowances for what /might/ have happened if you look
favorably on the party in question. It is here that I think Theo did the
biggest disservice -- to his own developer Marcus. By reacting as he did,
he put everyone on edge and made it that much more difficult to accept
that it was a simple 'mistake'.
