* Added configure option --enable-screensaver, to allow enabling the screensaver by default.
* Use XResetScreenSaver() instead of disabling screensaver entirely.

Full discussion summary from Erik on the SDL mailing list:

Current behaviour
=================

SDL changes the user's display power management settings without
permission from the user and without telling the user.

The interface that it uses to do so is DPMSDisable/DPMSEnable, which
should only ever be used by configuration utilities like KControl, never
by normal application programs, let alone by the libraries that they
use. Using an interface that is not at all intended for what SDL tries
to achieve means that it will not work as it should. Firstly, the power
management is completely disabled during the whole lifetime of the SDL
program, not only when it should be. Secondly, it makes SDL
non-reentrant, meaning that things will break when multiple SDL programs
are clients of the same X server simultaneously. Thirdly, no cleanup
mechanism ensures that the setting is restored if the client does not do
that (for example if it crashes).

In addition to that, this interface is broken on xorg,
[http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13962], so what SDL tries
to do does not work at all on that implementation of the X Window
System. (The reason that the DPMSEnable works in KControl is that it
calls DPMSSetTimeout immediately after,
[http://websvn.kde.org/tags/KDE/3.5.9/kdebase/kcontrol/energy/energy.cpp?annotate=774532#l343]).


The problems that the current behaviour causes
==============================================
1. Information leak. When the user is away, someone might see what the
user has on the display when the user counts on the screensaver
preventing this. This does not even require physical access to the
workstation, it is enough to see it from a distance.
2. Draining battery. An SDL program that runs on a laptop will quickly
drain the battery while the user is away. The system will soon shut down
and require recharging before being usable again, while it should in
fact have consumed very little energy if the user's settings would have
been obeyed.
3. Wasting energy. Even if battery issues are not considered, energy as
such is wasted.
4. Display wear. The display may be worn out.


The problems that the current behaviour tries to solve
======================================================

1. Preventing screensaver while playing movies.
Many SDL applications are media players. They have reasons to prevent
screensavers from being activated while a movie is being played. When a
user clicks on the play button it can be interpreted as saying "play
this movie, but do not turn off the display while playing it, because I
will watch it even though I do not interact with the system".

2. Preventing screensaver when some input bypasses X.
Sometimes SDL uses input from another source than the X server, so
that the X server is bypassed. This obviously breaks the screensaver
handling. SDL tries to work around that.

3. Preventing screensaver when all input bypasses X.
There is something called Direct Graphics Access mode, where a
program takes control of both the display and the input devices from the
X server. This obviously means that the X server can not handle the
screensaver alone, since screensaver handling depends on input handling.
SDL does not do what it should to help the X server to handle the
screensaver. Nor does SDL take care of screeensaver handling itself. SDL
simply disables the screensaver completely.


How the problems should be solved
=================================

The correct way for an application program to prevent the screensaver
under X is to call XResetScreenSaver. This was recently discovered and
implemented by the mplayer developers,
[http://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer?view=rev&revision=25637]. SDL needs to
wrap this in an API call (SDL_ResetScreenSaver) and implement it for the
other video targets (if they do not have a corresponding call, SDL
should do what it takes on that particular target, for example sending
fake key events).

1. When a movie is played, the player should reset the screensaver when
the animation is advanced to a new frame. The same applies to anything
similar, like slideshows.

2. When the X server is handling input, it must handle all input
(keyboards, mice, gamepads, ...). This is necessary, not only to be able
to handle the screensaver, but also so that it can send the events to
the correct (the currently active) client. If there is an input device
that the X server can not handle for some reason (such as lack of Plug
and Play capability), the program that handles the device as a
workaround must simulate what would happen if the X server would have
handled the device, by calling XResetScreenSaver when input is received
from the device.

3. When the X server is not handling the input, it depends on the
program that does to call XResetScreenSaver whenever an input event
occurs. Alternatively the program must handle the screensaver countdown
internally and call XActivateScreenSaver.

			    Preamble
slouken@0
    14
slouken@0
    15
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
slouken@0
    16
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
slouken@0
    17
Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change
slouken@0
    18
free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.
slouken@0
    19
slouken@1298
    20
  This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some
slouken@1298
    21
specially designated software packages--typically libraries--of the
slouken@1298
    22
Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it.  You
slouken@1298
    23
can use it too, but we suggest you first think carefully about whether
slouken@1298
    24
this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better
slouken@1298
    25
strategy to use in any particular case, based on the explanations below.
slouken@0
    26
slouken@1298
    27
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use,
slouken@1298
    28
not price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that
slouken@1298
    29
you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge
slouken@1298
    30
for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get
slouken@1298
    31
it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of
slouken@1298
    32
it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do
slouken@1298
    33
these things.
slouken@0
    34
slouken@0
    35
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
slouken@1298
    36
distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
slouken@1298
    37
rights.  These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
slouken@1298
    38
you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.
slouken@0
    39
slouken@0
    40
  For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
slouken@0
    41
or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
slouken@0
    42
you.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
slouken@1298
    43
code.  If you link other code with the library, you must provide
slouken@1298
    44
complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them
slouken@1298
    45
with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling
slouken@0
    46
it.  And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
slouken@0
    47
slouken@1298
    48
  We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
slouken@1298
    49
library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
slouken@0
    50
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
slouken@0
    51
slouken@1298
    52
  To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that
slouken@1298
    53
there is no warranty for the free library.  Also, if the library is
slouken@1298
    54
modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know
slouken@1298
    55
that what they have is not the original version, so that the original
slouken@1298
    56
author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might be
slouken@1298
    57
introduced by others.
slouken@0
    58

slouken@1298
    59
  Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of
slouken@1298
    60
any free program.  We wish to make sure that a company cannot
slouken@1298
    61
effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a
slouken@1298
    62
restrictive license from a patent holder.  Therefore, we insist that
slouken@1298
    63
any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be
slouken@1298
    64
consistent with the full freedom of use specified in this license.
slouken@0
    65
slouken@1298
    66
  Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
slouken@1298
    67
ordinary GNU General Public License.  This license, the GNU Lesser
slouken@1298
    68
General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and
slouken@1298
    69
is quite different from the ordinary General Public License.  We use
slouken@1298
    70
this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those
slouken@1298
    71
libraries into non-free programs.
slouken@0
    72
slouken@1298
    73
  When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using
slouken@1298
    74
a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a
slouken@1298
    75
combined work, a derivative of the original library.  The ordinary
slouken@1298
    76
General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the
slouken@1298
    77
entire combination fits its criteria of freedom.  The Lesser General
slouken@1298
    78
Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with
slouken@1298
    79
the library.
slouken@0
    80
slouken@1298
    81
  We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it
slouken@1298
    82
does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General
slouken@1298
    83
Public License.  It also provides other free software developers Less
slouken@1298
    84
of an advantage over competing non-free programs.  These disadvantages
slouken@1298
    85
are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many
slouken@1298
    86
libraries.  However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
slouken@1298
    87
special circumstances.
slouken@0
    88
slouken@1298
    89
  For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
slouken@1298
    90
encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it becomes
slouken@1298
    91
a de-facto standard.  To achieve this, non-free programs must be
slouken@1298
    92
allowed to use the library.  A more frequent case is that a free
slouken@1298
    93
library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries.  In this
slouken@1298
    94
case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free
slouken@1298
    95
software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
slouken@1298
    96
slouken@1298
    97
  In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
slouken@1298
    98
programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of
slouken@1298
    99
free software.  For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in
slouken@1298
   100
non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU
slouken@1298
   101
operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating
slouken@1298
   102
system.
slouken@1298
   103
slouken@1298
   104
  Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the
slouken@1298
   105
users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is
slouken@1298
   106
linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run
slouken@1298
   107
that program using a modified version of the Library.
slouken@0
   108
slouken@0
   109
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
slouken@0
   110
modification follow.  Pay close attention to the difference between a
slouken@0
   111
"work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library".  The
slouken@1298
   112
former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must
slouken@1298
   113
be combined with the library in order to run.

   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
slouken@0
   117
slouken@1298
   118
  0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other
slouken@1298
   119
program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or
slouken@1298
   120
other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of
slouken@1298
   121
this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").
slouken@1298
   122
Each licensee is addressed as "you".
slouken@0
   123
slouken@0
   124
  A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data
slouken@0
   125
prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application programs
slouken@0
   126
(which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
slouken@0
   127
slouken@0
   128
  The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work
slouken@0
   129
which has been distributed under these terms.  A "work based on the
slouken@0
   130
Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under
slouken@0
   131
copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Library or a
slouken@0
   132
portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated
slouken@0
   133
straightforwardly into another language.  (Hereinafter, translation is
slouken@0
   134
included without limitation in the term "modification".)
slouken@0
   135
slouken@0
   136
  "Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
slouken@0
   137
making modifications to it.  For a library, complete source code means
slouken@0
   138
all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated
slouken@0
   139
interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation
slouken@0
   140
and installation of the library.
slouken@0
   141
slouken@0
   142
  Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
slouken@0
   143
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
slouken@0
   144
running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from
slouken@0
   145
such a program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
slouken@0
   146
on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for
slouken@0
   147
writing it).  Whether that is true depends on what the Library does
slouken@0
   148
and what the program that uses the Library does.
slouken@0
   149
  
slouken@0
   150
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's
slouken@0
   151
complete source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
slouken@0
   152
you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
slouken@0
   153
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact
slouken@0
   154
all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any
slouken@0
   155
warranty; and distribute a copy of this License along with the
slouken@0
   156
Library.
slouken@0
   157
slouken@0
   158
  You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy,
slouken@0
   159
and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a
slouken@0
   160
fee.
slouken@0
   161

slouken@0
   162
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion
slouken@0
   163
of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and
slouken@0
   164
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
slouken@0
   165
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
slouken@0
   166
slouken@0
   167
    a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
slouken@0
   168
slouken@0
   169
    b) You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices
slouken@0
   170
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
slouken@0
   171
slouken@0
   172
    c) You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no
slouken@0
   173
    charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
slouken@0
   174
slouken@0
   175
    d) If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a
slouken@0
   176
    table of data to be supplied by an application program that uses
slouken@0
   177
    the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
slouken@0
   178
    is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort to ensure that,
slouken@0
   179
    in the event an application does not supply such function or
slouken@0
   180
    table, the facility still operates, and performs whatever part of
slouken@0
   181
    its purpose remains meaningful.
slouken@0
   182
slouken@0
   183
    (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
slouken@0
   184
    a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
slouken@0
   185
    application.  Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
slouken@0
   186
    application-supplied function or table used by this function must
slouken@0
   187
    be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
slouken@0
   188
    root function must still compute square roots.)
slouken@0
   189
slouken@0
   190
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
slouken@0
   191
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
slouken@0
   192
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
slouken@0
   193
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
slouken@0
   194
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
slouken@0
   195
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
slouken@0
   196
on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
slouken@0
   197
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
slouken@0
   198
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
slouken@0
   199
it.
slouken@0
   200
slouken@0
   201
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
slouken@0
   202
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
slouken@0
   203
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
slouken@0
   204
collective works based on the Library.
slouken@0
   205
slouken@0
   206
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library
slouken@0
   207
with the Library (or with a work based on the Library) on a volume of
slouken@0
   208
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
slouken@0
   209
the scope of this License.
slouken@0
   210
slouken@0
   211
  3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
slouken@0
   212
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.  To do
slouken@0
   213
this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so
slouken@0
   214
that they refer to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2,
slouken@0
   215
instead of to this License.  (If a newer version than version 2 of the
slouken@0
   216
ordinary GNU General Public License has appeared, then you can specify
slouken@0
   217
that version instead if you wish.)  Do not make any other change in
slouken@0
   218
these notices.
slouken@0
   219

slouken@0
   220
  Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for
slouken@0
   221
that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License applies to all
slouken@0
   222
subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
slouken@0
   223
slouken@0
   224
  This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of
slouken@0
   225
the Library into a program that is not a library.
slouken@0
   226
slouken@0
   227
  4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or
slouken@0
   228
derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
slouken@0
   229
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany
slouken@0
   230
it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which
slouken@0
   231
must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a
slouken@0
   232
medium customarily used for software interchange.
slouken@0
   233
slouken@0
   234
  If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy
slouken@0
   235
from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
slouken@0
   236
source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to
slouken@0
   237
distribute the source code, even though third parties are not
slouken@0
   238
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
slouken@0
   239
slouken@0
   240
  5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the
slouken@0
   241
Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being compiled or
slouken@0
   242
linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library".  Such a
slouken@0
   243
work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
slouken@0
   244
therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
slouken@0
   245
slouken@0
   246
  However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
slouken@0
   247
creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
slouken@0
   248
contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
slouken@0
   249
library".  The executable is therefore covered by this License.
slouken@0
   250
Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
slouken@0
   251
slouken@0
   252
  When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file
slouken@0
   253
that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a
slouken@0
   254
derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.
slouken@0
   255
Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
slouken@0
   256
linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library.  The
slouken@0
   257
threshold for this to be true is not precisely defined by law.
slouken@0
   258
slouken@0
   259
  If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data
slouken@0
   260
structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small inline
slouken@0
   261
functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object
slouken@0
   262
file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is legally a derivative
slouken@0
   263
work.  (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
slouken@0
   264
Library will still fall under Section 6.)
slouken@0
   265
slouken@0
   266
  Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may
slouken@0
   267
distribute the object code for the work under the terms of Section 6.
slouken@0
   268
Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6,
slouken@0
   269
whether or not they are linked directly with the Library itself.
slouken@0
   270

slouken@1298
   271
  6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or
slouken@0
   272
link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to produce a
slouken@0
   273
work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work
slouken@0
   274
under terms of your choice, provided that the terms permit
slouken@0
   275
modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse
slouken@0
   276
engineering for debugging such modifications.
slouken@0
   277
slouken@0
   278
  You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the
slouken@0
   279
Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are covered by
slouken@0
   280
this License.  You must supply a copy of this License.  If the work
slouken@0
   281
during execution displays copyright notices, you must include the
slouken@0
   282
copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference
slouken@0
   283
directing the user to the copy of this License.  Also, you must do one
slouken@0
   284
of these things:
slouken@0
   285
slouken@0
   286
    a) Accompany the work with the complete corresponding
slouken@0
   287
    machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
slouken@0
   288
    changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under
slouken@0
   289
    Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an executable linked
slouken@0
   290
    with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that
slouken@0
   291
    uses the Library", as object code and/or source code, so that the
slouken@0
   292
    user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified
slouken@0
   293
    executable containing the modified Library.  (It is understood
slouken@0
   294
    that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the
slouken@0
   295
    Library will not necessarily be able to recompile the application
slouken@0
   296
    to use the modified definitions.)
slouken@0
   297
slouken@1298
   298
    b) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
slouken@1298
   299
    Library.  A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run time a
slouken@1298
   300
    copy of the library already present on the user's computer system,
slouken@1298
   301
    rather than copying library functions into the executable, and (2)
slouken@1298
   302
    will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if
slouken@1298
   303
    the user installs one, as long as the modified version is
slouken@1298
   304
    interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
slouken@1298
   305
slouken@1298
   306
    c) Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at
slouken@0
   307
    least three years, to give the same user the materials
slouken@0
   308
    specified in Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more
slouken@0
   309
    than the cost of performing this distribution.
slouken@0
   310
slouken@1298
   311
    d) If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy
slouken@0
   312
    from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy the above
slouken@0
   313
    specified materials from the same place.
slouken@0
   314
slouken@1298
   315
    e) Verify that the user has already received a copy of these
slouken@0
   316
    materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
slouken@0
   317
slouken@0
   318
  For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the
slouken@0
   319
Library" must include any data and utility programs needed for
slouken@0
   320
reproducing the executable from it.  However, as a special exception,
slouken@1298
   321
the materials to be distributed need not include anything that is
slouken@1298
   322
normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
slouken@0
   323
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on
slouken@0
   324
which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies
slouken@0
   325
the executable.
slouken@0
   326
slouken@0
   327
  It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license
slouken@0
   328
restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
slouken@0
   329
accompany the operating system.  Such a contradiction means you cannot
slouken@0
   330
use both them and the Library together in an executable that you
slouken@0
   331
distribute.
slouken@0
   332

slouken@0
   333
  7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
slouken@0
   334
Library side-by-side in a single library together with other library
slouken@0
   335
facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined
slouken@0
   336
library, provided that the separate distribution of the work based on
slouken@0
   337
the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise
slouken@0
   338
permitted, and provided that you do these two things:
slouken@0
   339
slouken@0
   340
    a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work
slouken@0
   341
    based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
slouken@0
   342
    facilities.  This must be distributed under the terms of the
slouken@0
   343
    Sections above.
slouken@0
   344
slouken@0
   345
    b) Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact
slouken@0
   346
    that part of it is a work based on the Library, and explaining
slouken@0
   347
    where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
slouken@0
   348
slouken@0
   349
  8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute
slouken@0
   350
the Library except as expressly provided under this License.  Any
slouken@0
   351
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or
slouken@0
   352
distribute the Library is void, and will automatically terminate your
slouken@0
   353
rights under this License.  However, parties who have received copies,
slouken@0
   354
or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
slouken@0
   355
terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
slouken@0
   356
slouken@0
   357
  9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
slouken@0
   358
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
slouken@0
   359
distribute the Library or its derivative works.  These actions are
slouken@0
   360
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
slouken@0
   361
modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the
slouken@0
   362
Library), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
slouken@0
   363
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
slouken@0
   364
the Library or works based on it.
slouken@0
   365
slouken@0
   366
  10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the
slouken@0
   367
Library), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
slouken@0
   368
original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library
slouken@0
   369
subject to these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
slouken@0
   370
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
slouken@1298
   371
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with
slouken@0
   372
this License.
slouken@0
   373

slouken@0
   374
  11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
slouken@0
   375
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
slouken@0
   376
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
slouken@0
   377
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
slouken@0
   378
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
slouken@0
   379
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
slouken@0
   380
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
slouken@0
   381
may not distribute the Library at all.  For example, if a patent
slouken@0
   382
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Library by
slouken@0
   383
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
slouken@0
   384
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
slouken@0
   385
refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
slouken@0
   386
slouken@0
   387
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
slouken@0
   388
particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply,
slouken@0
   389
and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
slouken@0
   390
slouken@0
   391
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
slouken@0
   392
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
slouken@0
   393
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
slouken@0
   394
integrity of the free software distribution system which is
slouken@0
   395
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
slouken@0
   396
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
slouken@0
   397
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
slouken@0
   398
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
slouken@0
   399
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
slouken@0
   400
impose that choice.
slouken@0
   401
slouken@0
   402
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
slouken@0
   403
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
slouken@0
   404
slouken@0
   405
  12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in
slouken@0
   406
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
slouken@0
   407
original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add
slouken@0
   408
an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,
slouken@0
   409
so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
slouken@0
   410
excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
slouken@0
   411
written in the body of this License.
slouken@0
   412
slouken@0
   413
  13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new
slouken@1298
   414
versions of the Lesser General Public License from time to time.
slouken@0
   415
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version,
slouken@0
   416
but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
slouken@0
   417
slouken@0
   418
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Library
slouken@0
   419
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and
slouken@0
   420
"any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
slouken@0
   421
conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
slouken@0
   422
the Free Software Foundation.  If the Library does not specify a
slouken@0
   423
license version number, you may choose any version ever published by
slouken@0
   424
the Free Software Foundation.
slouken@0
   425

slouken@0
   426
  14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free
slouken@0
   427
programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible with these,
slouken@0
   428
write to the author to ask for permission.  For software which is
slouken@0
   429
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free
slouken@0
   430
Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this.  Our
slouken@0
   431
decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
slouken@0
   432
of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
slouken@0
   433
and reuse of software generally.
slouken@0
   434
slouken@0
   435
			    NO WARRANTY
slouken@0
   436
slouken@0
   437
  15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
slouken@0
   438
WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
slouken@0
   439
EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
slouken@0
   440
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
slouken@0
   441
KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
slouken@0
   442
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
slouken@0
   443
PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
slouken@0
   444
LIBRARY IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
slouken@0
   445
THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
slouken@0
   446
slouken@0
   447
  16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
slouken@0
   448
WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
slouken@0
   449
AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
slouken@0
   450
FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
slouken@0
   451
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
slouken@0
   452
LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
slouken@0
   453
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
slouken@0
   454
FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF
slouken@0
   455
SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
slouken@0
   456
DAMAGES.
