Seems I had the legalisms for X-Windows & Motif bass-ackwards.

Holding my breath until X-Window was open sourced would have been
a very small inconvenience as their license at:

	http://www.x.org/xlicense.html

basically lets you do whatever you want as long as you include the
Copyright and Permission notices with whatever distribution you
make of it ( more or less ).

Motif on the other hand cost you the proverbial body parts for
anything beyond fair comment and academic usage. Certainly
bids fair to make our lives easier down at the mill.
