 free at all

I think it is in conflict with GPL because there are imposed restrictions
on modifying the code (wondering what kind of a **** would modify a cracker
to create archives anyway).

OpenSSL falls in the same category with its advertising clause.

We have many examples of a "GPL with OpenSSL exception" (like curl for
example), but I haven't seen such thing for rar. 7zip is the first example
I've seen, thanks for that.
