    Well absence of proof isn't proof of absence.  No followup doesn't seem to
    imply any strong evidence either pro or con.  Perhaps they don't have any
    strong feelings one way or another on this issue at all, which CERTAINLY
    doesn't support he idea that they'd hotly contest any such idea, or even
    that they WOULDN'T hotly contest the way we're heading now.
    Asking Linus to clarify seems a reasonable proposition, if a question
    could be posed that wasn't loaded and was suitably simple and to the
    point.  He could always decline to clarify. :)
