Hmm. mysql does appear to be using this implementation, but since they
are specifically distributing under GPL v2 *only*, I'm not sure it's a
problem. Or are you saying BSD+ad is incompatible with v2 as well?
If it is the RSA
implementation, we're going to need to replace it (coreutils has a GPL
compatible implementation that should be a drop in).
Not sure I see the point of the sort of patch you seem to envision.
If we are shipping SRPMs containing upstream tarballs that contain
BSD+ad code, haven't we got an issue anyway?
