This whole issue raises some valid concerns about IP and the
accountability of those who inherit said code. If someone submits a
patch to something that I am the benevolent dictator for, how can I be
assured that they didn't steal the code?
Granted, many would argue that propetary code is evil in the first
place, but I live in the real world.
