I don't have a problem with KDE being European in character, though.  :-)

And given the locations of the paid KDE developers, the KDE sponsors, and 
the KDE servers, it always made sense to me that European laws matter most 
to KDE.  KDE's shipping of reverse-engineered code hasn't been slowed by 
US law, but at least one KDE app has been renamed because of German law.

Sure.  I always liked that map.  I wonder what I'm getting myself into, 
though.  If is going to be moved to www and the mirror 
system, then won't the map have to be hand-generated from now on? :-)
