I /*READ */what Markus wrote; I thought /*several times*/ before 
writing.  And after thinking several times, I still reached the 
conclusion that Max Chernoff /*cannot*/ and /*should not */be required 
to conform with the requirements of a multi-user licence if he is 
installing on a single-user machine.  The fact that the TeX Live 
infrastructure does not make it possible for KOMA-script to identify 
unambiguously whether or not it is being installed on a multi-user 
system is clearly a defect in the TeX Live infrastructure which should 
be addressed.

Please avoid /ad hominem/ attacks, Norbert — it is unfortunately only 
too characteristic of your preferred style of replying, and does little 
or nothing to enhance your reputation.

Yes, licencing requirements, whilst clearly necessary and acceptable for 
proprietary software, are a complete and utter pain in the @rse in the 
open-source world — I have never thought otherwise.  The sooner they are 
abolished for free-as-in-libre software the better.
