	No, and that's what's nice about copyleft.  It forbids code
hoarding.

	OTOH, it would be interesting to see some competition.  Ingres
could encroach in some current or prospective PostgreSQL users, and
perhaps force us to get back the *relational* QUEL.  That could
prepare us better for a relational future, now that there is a
proprietary RDBMS (Alphora Dataphor, even if using SQL under covers)
and at least one in development (by Alfredo Novoa).
