I am sure the problem is that you are using RT's list to
promote your own/others cause which ultimately may lead to
loss of revenue for RT. ( On the other hand it may lead to
increased revenues - but who is to know? ) I'm in favour of
Open Source, but not if it leads to reduced development by
RT. They've got enough competitors with NQL ( see Jan Dr
Dobbs ) and others coming.
Some companies have as part of their licensing agreements
the condition that the user does not reverse engineer their
products. I haven't read RT's license for sometime, but
would be suprised to find it missing.
