In the long run what do you gain by fighting with the author?
You end up with a fork in the code and the new maintainers must
live with the notions of the original author. Work will be duplicated
as both sets of code must be maintained etc.

It will be good to have firewall software that follows the BSD goals,
free for everyone.
