Haha, it makes for a good laughter that particularly the GNU folks would
complain about the Perl documentation. I am sure that I had never learnt
Perl if it had been documented the way GNU projects are.

The chaps from the Free Software Foundation live in a sort of parallel
universe, as it sometimes seems. In the mentioned article they complain
that O'Reilly doesn't let users copy and modify the source of their
books. Of course, they are neglecting the rather obvious fact that it'd
be pretty hard to earn any money when allowing that.
