This is a great and poetically justified piece of software from the
NDA-avoiding perspective; however, I think ESR has enough contact with
reality to know that SCO won't permit its use as such. I find it likely,
though, that he intends it to be used primarily for predetermining which
bits of the Linux kernel can be verified to have come from "clean"
sources, e.g. ancient Unixes whose code is in the public domain.
