I hoped to make clear that this practice is a dead end indeed, by
pointing out that only patent attorneys would get rich from implicitly
assigning patents to the XSF.

But still we have to decide if we want a royalty free general license or
use patent licensing to protect the interests of the XSF (and make life
of others more difficult.)
