Good news overall, thanks. Still it would be nice to have the agreement 
text cleaned up. TI's opinion may change without warning and the text as 
it is now is not so friendly. But it is good to know that chances of 
unhappy calls from TI's lawyers are low :-) One more reason to take DSP 
development seriously.
