    Wherefrom the eagerness to remove Jambus's code then?
    Seems more people believe that, even if it's wrong wrt GPL.

The GPL exists to serve a social movement centered around sharing.
Releasing code under the GPL and then agitating to unshare that
(and/or future) code works against both the spirit of that movement
and the efforts of its supporters.

It's no surprise then that people perceive continuing engagement as
more effort than necessary on their part, and cannot maintain the
stoicism that considering only the GPL allows.

Writing this took a few minutes, reading it, slightly less.
Did i add/subtract/multiply/divide, or just compound the mess?

Indeed the social is at stake. Unlike antic computers, we must not take input 
as is, but interpret in it's range.
Some person said he wants to hurt?

If these words are all we know, than it might be done.
However, can some words pronounced in seconds --even if repeated-- outweigh a 
dedication of years?

If Jambunathan would be that selfish person as depicted, he'd rather worked in 
some usury-business than writing Emacs Lisp code.

The mistake is elsewhere
