What makes you think the licence is something like an _eternal_ NDA?

Larry, I've used bitkeeper for a few months to pull linus's and rik's trees
and export them for my own use until about a month ago. I've also tried
using it in a single user repository for contest (the benchmark).

Last week, feeling tempted to dig into arch, I removed all the files from
the bitkeeper installation and I did a search-and-unlink of BitKeeper
directories, just in case.

Do you intend to sue me if I ever submit a patch for cvs/subversion/whatever
(arch kind of sucks:-) or if I feel like starting my own scm project? (while
I think this would be ridiculous I'm not trying to bash you here, it's an
honest question regarding Jamie's comment above)
