I remember reading that the MSNBOT reads the "Robots.txt" file, but cpantesters has a lowercase filename:

http://static.cpantesters.org/robots.txt

http://static.cpantesters.org/Robots.txt doesn't exist, so basically MSNBOT only respects the robots.txt on case insensitive operating systems.

"Autodesk countered that because it licenses the software, rather than selling it outright, a licensee does not have the right to resell its products"

Vernor is passing that same license to a new owner, he's not duplicating it.

But now software licenses are tied to a single real life person and can't be transferred, you paid for it and now it's yours forever.

Bret Taylor says:

When we started, we did use Twisted. In practice, I found Twisted tedious. The deferred abstraction works, but I didn't love it in practice. Likewise, the HTTP/web support in Twisted is very chaotic (see http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/WebDevelopment ... - even they acknowledge this). In general, it seems like Twisted is full of demo-quality stuff, but most of the protocols have tons of bugs.
Given all those factors, it didn't seem to provide a lot of value. Our core I/O loop is actually pretty small and simple, and I think resulted in fewer bugs than would have come up if we had used Twisted.
