Let's keep honest here: it should read "being willing", not "being able".  
Nobody forces the FSF to only use FSF-assigned code. (They have their  
reasons, of course, which we don't need to discuss for the umpteenth time;  
we should just remember that it is a voluntary decision, and not enforced  
by some external entity.)
