He won't do it. This nasty paragraph was actually added quite late and subject
to much discussion.
At least for me it tipped over the BitKeeper license from merely being annoying
(OpenLogging for my test trees etc.) to totally unacceptable. Of course you
can ignore it and hope he or whoever owns BitKeeper at some point won't sue 
you, but I 
wouldn't bet on that.
