[xml-dev] [horribly off topic] Rob't Burns on the DOJ sellout

Today's news evokes memories of a famous sellout 300 years ago, commemorated in verse by Robert Burns

Farewell to all browser choice, farewell all innovation,
To hell with all you other nerds, says the Bush administration,
Now XP owns all the IP bands, open source a forgotten notion,
Because now Bill G's dominance stands,
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation

What hype nor guile could not subdue, through browser warring ages,
Is wrought now by a coward few, for monstrous lawyers' wages,
Bill G's code we could disdain, standards our preservation,
But Bill G's gold has been our bane,
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation

Oh would ne'er I had seen the day, that treason thus befell us,
My old grey head should be buried in the clay, with Java and dear old Linux
Tho'w e don't have power 'til my last hour, I'll make this declaration,
We were bought and sold for Bill G's gold,
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation
