Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

- You know, it's at times like this when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock
  with a man from Betelgeuse and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space
  that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was
- Why, what did she tell you?
- I don't know, I didn't listen!
