Re: Merging Apple's Objective-C 2.0 compiler changes

I see the smiley, but I'd say the serious answer to that is that it
might or might not be depending on what we knew about the copyright
status of that code.

If we knew (and this is the hard part!) through some means OTHER than
the copyright notice in the files themselves that distributing these
test case would not violate the copyright on them, then I think it
would be fine to include them whether or not they were assigned to the
FSF or whether the license was the GPL or not.
