	Umm... this is the stated purpose... but so long as it's openly
available on the net, it is effectively available for other purposes
than these. The feds won't let you get away with just a warning label vs
non-US-citizens for cryptography programs on the net (unfortunately); I
would think the same principle would apply here.
	There's also the point about a mailing list that charges,
directly or indirectly (e.g., for their own archive's use or via ads on
the list or on their own archive). Scholarly use doesn't include
sufficient use to be able to completely remove commercial value, unless
I completely misunderstand copyright law. Please inform me if so...
there's a lot of material (chiefly programs) that I'd have free access
to if that was the case.
