I think "I told you so" is not what you want to say :)  All my changes to smbfs make their way onto the web in the "Darwin" source code releases, with just the original BSD copyrights from Boris.  But don't ever confuse my words with an official corporate statement...  I'm only saying that my personal preference was to add no encumbrances to the BSD source, and thus far I think I've gotten that result (IANAL, etc).

That's great news Conrad, thanks ! And you can tell Terry I owe
him lunch or a beer then :-) :-).

Thanks for confirming that, it's very good news from Apple. Now
I just need to persuade Steve French to take your code and add
it to the Linux cifsfs (under the GPL of course :-) :-).
