This is excellent news!

There's really a lot of excellent research and
some fairly mature engineering in formal methods,
and I'm really excited to see any barriers
to wider deployment and understanding of it,
such as licensing constraints, removed.

Ian, did you tell me that while the
release of all of oiled as open source
isn't quite done[1], the FaCT reasoner itself
is open source already? I can't confirm
from what I can see at a glance.
