I have no problem with your opinions, but freedom is freedom, you can't
make exceptions for things you don't like. That's what freedom (and the
GPL) are about.

As for crippling the build, that is just ridiculous. I have the skill to
un-cripple it if I wanted and needed to, but I wouldn't bother for a
30-second delay - how often do you rebuild something anyway!
