I see Peters and your point, however this is a bit tricky to do (the
licence dialog is a standard dialog in the setup creator, I'd have to
create a new dialog from scratch or modify the sources of the setup
creator and recompile it).

I'll see what I can do. 

Did you ever realize how much text fits in eighty columns? If you now consider
that a signature usually consists of up to four lines, this gives you enough
space to spread a tremendous amount of information with your messages. So seize
this opportunity and don't waste your signature with bullshit nobody will read.
