Maybe not from using it, but definitely from contributing to it. Someone
asking for a 64-bit version told me that he would love to try to make
this happen himself, but his company forbids them to look at GPL code at
all: they could be accused of using that code and then they'd have to
make their code GPL too. I know that's really a very low risk, but some
companies just don't take any risks...
