The ArgyllCMS code is already available for integration
under the AGPL license (I'm prepared to change the instrument
drivers to pure GPL V3 if that makes any difference.)
I understand that Richard wants drivers with a BSD like license though,
and I'm not prepared to give the code away, as it represents a
significant amount of work.

I think the reality is that the Linux driven sales of instruments
don't register compared to Apple and MSWin driven sales. If things
were otherwise, the instrument manufacturers would be providing
Linux software.
