What about this project, that can help schools in all of these countries, 
leads you to comment that SEUL is "through-and-through American"?

Personally, I feel sad for America's reputation that the best software 
available is often from the Netherlands, Denmark or Germany, like the 3D 
program Blender, the TYPO3 content management system, or others. Compared to 
almost all of the distinctly-American software that populates 95% of PCs, 
which is bug-ridden and insecure, I think the software SEUL promotes is 
incredibly well-regarded and promoted from whereever it originates.
