It sounds like the LS devs don't want people _selling_ LS? That's not
what "commercial use" means (I'm not sure what "direct" commercial usage
is supposed to mean). Commercial USE it just that - using the software
commercially, eg. to produce an album for sale. The exception needs to
be reworded to refer specifically to sale. Point is this REALLY needs
to be clarified. If using LS on commercial albums etc. isn't intended
to be against the terms, the phrase "commercial use" should be removed
completely.

Though as far as being more beneficial, I really don't think LS being
less widely distributed and not in any distributions because it's not
OSS is going to benefit anyone, especially since it's a project with so
much potential to replace a closed app with an open one (that runs in
Linux). Try and fudge the definition of 'open source' all you want, but
a project with such an exception will definitely never be included in
any of the major distributions, and that just hurts "us".
