HAY Betov, Spare us the revisionist bullsh*t, you simply were not
there when it happened and you were not part of it. You were just a
parasite that tried to attach yourself to the coattails of the MASM
lead resurrection of assembler 3 to 4 years after it had happened.
Your notion of a rebirth is simply bullsh*t.

Quoting your own bullsh*t does not help you here, you were not an
authority back then, you are not one now.

Come on Betov, come clean, you are just a bludger and a parasite
trying to sach in on someone elses work.

Maybe you should ask in a linux group. I did this a year ago, but without
much success:

The keyword here is "usually". A car usually runs on petrol. Does that
mean battery operated cars are not cars?

Unless the producer of the works explicitly waives all copyrights and
other rights.

Are there many examples of the "GPL community" taking PD works and
putting them under GPL/LGPL after trivial modifications?

Yes. The ptrace system call. This provides only "bare minimum" facility.
Building something like the RosAsm debugger on top of this is likely to
be a lot of work. See the link:
