disturbing Bitkeeper threats

I just found this post on a friend's blog:


The poster (Bryan O'Sullivan) is a key Mercurial developer, and
apparently Larry McVoy has persuaded him to stop working on Mercurial
-- on moral grounds, perhaps? -- because he uses Bitkeeper
commercially at his job. I'm rather amazed that he agrees with Larry.

I'm not sure what to think. Years ago, Larry changed the 'free beer'
BK license to prevent a Subversion developer from using BK. But in
this case, Larry has no legal ground to stand on.
