Re: anyone ever gotten xerox to clarify the MOO license before?

It would seem to me that since the MOO code is a derivitive work based
on a previous work by Stephen White, aka ghond, that if he were to GPL
the original work, then that would solve the whole problem for once
and for all: Xerox would either have to make MOO fall under the terms
of the GPL, or not distribute MOO.  But it is too late for them to not
distribute MOO, since that has already been done.  

Furthermore, MOO has openly been "out there" for a number of years,
and is well documented both in the computer technical literature, and
also in various sociological scholarly works.  I don't see that
whether the lawyers at Xerox will admit to anything or not has a thing
to do with it!
