Fractured is correct regarding Onyx not breaking GPL. That's how LL was able
to legally keep Viewer 2 under wraps for so long.

I stand corrected, then.  I wasn't really talking about malicious code,
though.  I was just talking about protection from the worst-case
scenario where a client has an unintended bug in it that causes rolling
restarts, then LL comes after the 3rd party dev for damages.  I meant to
talk about incompetent coders, not malicious coders (I know that none of
the coders on this mailing list fit either description, but it's still
something to think about).  Even LL sidesteps liability for damages done
by the official viewer, so why shouldn't 3rd party devs try to do the
same thing?

On a different subject:  Is Fractured Crystal correct in the following
video when he says that he is not breaking TOS with the Onyx viewer
because he only distributes the source code and not the binaries of it?
