Are you a lawyer? Have you tested this theory legally? If not, then
please be sure to point that out before you give other people advice

I don't want a long thread about this on this mailing list. We'll bore

of postings about this issue in the mailing list archive,


And there used to be a mailing list devoted to the topic,

sca-distilling at home.tycho.com

Although I don't know if it's alive at the moment.
