They aren't. They are *data*, not part of the programme. Otherwise,
content you write in a word processor would be an informative message
of it? Even GPL'd if the word processor itself is?

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
