I agree with everything you've said here.  My angle is that I want
to protect Freeciv.  I wouldn't like Microprose to think we were
condoning the theft of their copyright material.

I have re-editted the page so this link has a footnote saying it's
not associated with Freeciv, but I can't put it up because of a
permissions problem on the web site that can't be resolved over FTP.
(I don't have ssh from here at work).
