Simon, don't take my words out of context.  The rest of the statement was:

   "I would be quite happy if David had the time and
   resources to develop a fully functional GPL_ONLY
   client for the Linux community.   I would feel I
   have accomplished my mission as an OpenAFS Elder
   if Red Hat thought that support of AFS was important
   enough to devote resources to. "

Please don't pick fights when no argument exists.
