    at the same time, I think it's important to note that by supporting  
    the idea of improving Emacs on *all* platforms, more students are  
    consequently encouraged to apply to work on GNU projects (which is  
    arguably beneficial with regards to the number of spots GNU is  
    allotted during the course of the program).

Even if that's true, it counts for little when set against our
principal mission: to teach people that proprietary software is unjust.

It would be foolish and self defeating to blatantly ignore our ethical
principles just to attract more developers.
