actually, the license means that it can go on a cheapbytes( or similar )  
CD. It precludes it from being in a SuSE/Caldera/RH box set. It's not so
much ethically bad as it is stupid: because being included in a major
distribution is a good way to get a lot of users.

Still, the technical reason is sound. Motif software is a headache for us.
