The bug is in the reader then: I don't mean adware as derogatory or a
flame.  I mean it as a matter of fact.  I think it's fair to summarise
a manual whose licence requires reproduction of certain adverts as
an adware manual.

However, if the FDL's ability to require irremovable and unchangeable
adverts upsets someone, they shouldn't be using those FDL'd items.

Hope that explains,
