Yes, the intension was to keep commercial products away from the
open-source version of MySQL. But now it keeps away other projects like
PHP ! Even though they added a special clause for open-source
projects... Maybe the FSF will tell you that all these problematic
projects should go GPL and it will be fine ;)
