        I said "IF", and in case anyone misunderstands it, it means GPL
compatible. Even if JOSS becomes GPL compatible, implementing P2P
may require a some modification. I was asking about the level of
modifications required.

        And never forget the ethical advantages of using GPL. GNU
is more about freedom than practical advantages.

        This is what I meant by "if we could use JOSS".
