Please phrase this correctly: binary-_only_ distributions for which source 
code will not be made available because the BSD license allows it.

If someone wants to do Free Software/open-source development, this is no 
problem at all.  It's only a problem if someone wants the code to go 
proprietary at some point.

I'm not a GPL zealot.  I just think that if the guy who's writing the code 
is giving you the source code, is giving you unlimited use rights, 
unlimited distribution rights, his only requirement is you have to share 
the code, too... then the guy who's writing the code ain't doing you 
nothing but right.
