So it is more to 'learn them a lesson' ?

No I'm just confused because you are sending out mixed signals.

If it is ok to support Real Player then it must also be ok to support
Emacs integration packages to other proprietary software. Like Visual
C++ or Adobe Photoshop, Right?

If it is not ok to support PalmOS because it is proprietary then why
does Emacs even compile and run on Windows, OS X or many of the other
closed source operating systems.
