Ok, I understand the revolutionary aspect of the project (which I
might not have fully understood before).

But there are two further questions:

- What is the best way to live in the mixed economy until the
revolution succeeds?  If I understand correctly, Aquamacs *is* free
software, but its level of cooperation with proprietary software might
be different from Gnu's.

- The copyright problem also seems to block Gnu from absorbing, or
even partrnering with, other fully free software (with no question of
any nonfree software).  I have in mind all the stuff on nongnu.org.
Your statement above isn't addressing that issue.
