Hmm, indeed looks dodgy. Just remember we can't complain about them
charging money for it as long as they are distributiing it under the
terms of the GPL with sources. We can ask nicely for attribution and
stuff though but not demand it.

However, I can't tell if they have made any effort to make sure that
they aren't selling modules that are 'distribute from crosswire only'.
That would be a bigger problem.

No idea, hopefully Chris or someone else will pop up :) (and I'm sure
someone will disagree with me about people selling GPLd software but
the GPL does allow you to do that).
