I can see where this would grate upon your sensibilities.  But I don't
see how SEUL can be considered to have anything to do with it.

Why fight the monopoly of Microsoft if we surrender without comment
to the American monopoly on education and culture?

SEUL comes into it because I have the distinct feeling that
non-American attempts at cooperation and non-American software
in the past have been ignored by SEUL. If that has been an
honest communication glitch I would like to discuss the chain
of events with you off-list.
