| Eh? Anyone who wants them is free to get them and AFIAK they have been

Tell that to the admins (like me) who do not want non-standard libraries
installed by users on production systems.

| Correct me if I'm wrong, but FSF is not the owner of gmp so I think this

FSF owns gmp... but I do not know if they own *your* patches.  That is the
problem.  RMS will not allow distribution of anything that has not been
legally signed over to the FSF.
