I'm sure they would.  I'd rather see musl never have anything to do with
any patent-based organization at all, much less take sides with some
ridiculous corporate arms race.  Especially as I can't find any actual
evidence that this company has *done* anything.

I think using pkgsrc is a great option, which Gregor has already been
doing.  It's pretty obvious the OIN list is not vetted or paid attention
to; they just want as many linuxy words as possible so they can make
noises at the watering hole.
