It wasn't really aimed at James, it was just my understanding of what he 
posted and If my understanding is correct, then it was aimed fairly and 
squarely at the bunch of lawyers, sorry for any misunderstanding :-[

My feeling is that the bunch of lawyers have spat the dummy out AND 
thrown the teddy out of the pram and are lashing out at everybody and 
anybody to get their way, they need to be put back in their box.

BIG NOTE: All this is just my opinion and must not be taken as the 
opinion of the Samba team.
