I respect Vernon's unhappiness with the documentation's statement that DCC is
not "open source" but I disagree with his replacement wording for why the
plugin is not enabled by default. I propose the following instead. I don't want
to upload an entirely new patch. I don't want to make the change in the
existing source code for DCC.pm because that would just cause difficulties when
it becomes time to apply this extensive patch.

The portion of his patch that I disagree with:

-Note that DCC is disabled by default in C<init.pre> because it is not
-open source. See the DCC license for more details.
+See http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/ for more information about DCC.

-See http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/ for more information about
-DCC.
+DCC is disabled by default in C<confdir/v310.pre> because it is free for
+only some but not all commercial users. See the DCC license for the free
+version at http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/LICENSE.

The wording that I would put there:

Note that DCC is disabled by default in C<init.pre> because its license
does not meet the Apache Software Foundation's licensing criteria for
third-party software.

See the DCC license at http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/LICENSE
