Does this mean that the developers wouldn't have to jump through all of the
paperwork hoops?  At times it seems as if the FSF has become a slow
behemoth with allowing people to start contributing to the software to any
major extent.  Signing disclaimers and the like.

What is the licence on libwww?  Is it GPL?  Would that have to be separated
out?  Ie, can someone take the libwww as distributed by lynx and put it
into their own program with no acknowledgement or source code availability?

Personally, I think becoming a GNU program would be more headache than it's
