GhostScript/Peter Deutsch, "GS is not to appear as a draw for a commercial
offering" unless the publisher arranges a license fee with Peter. This is
reasonable, I believe.

This demand bears on GUST's plan to have that Polish magazine bundle in the
CD, so in that case, Sebastian has decided to cut them a special CD, I think.

On this point, TUG is in the clear, so I do not anticipate problems.
