Now then,  wouldn't it be nice if we had a 95+%  marketshare so we could
worry about that problem???
Nobody is goint to press a anti trust suite against something that has a ?
% market share.

and there is the rub. Because of the tight integration, IBM would have to
tell the open source people (and everybody else) about all these hooks
