You've got the wrong license.  We're talking about the Free Use
License, which is here:

Section 3(d) says:

       (d)  Notwithstanding any other terms in this License, this
            License is not available to You if  You  and/or  your
            employer  develop,  produce,  sell,  and/or  resell a
            product which contains substantially similar capabil-
            ities  of  the BitKeeper Software, or, in the reason-
            able opinion of BitMover, competes with the BitKeeper

Really, this means that if Larry decides you "compete", you are out.
So in the example of a Debian developer, Larry could decide that
Debian competes, and take out all Debian developers if he likes.
