I am fully with Wilko here.

We don't need to change the license or use any other means to
beat our users over the head.

We need them to understand the problem, and act as intelligent
human beings.

A lot of our users do this.  We have many crucial FreeBSD developers
employed at companies which understand that developer support is
key to FreeBSDs future.

We just need more of that.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
