I think that may be exactly the situation. So long as we use original samples, 
credit our sources and no-one makes any money out of it, the worst case 
scenario is that Mellotron Archives insist we take the soundfonts off-line. I 
think we might have a reasonable chance to argue that their endorsement of 
these soundfonts might be a very cool PR move in the current climate of Linux 
acceptance if it came to that. (: So I'm an optimist. :)
