No, toybox is by me, Rob Landley, ex-maintainer of busybox, and the guy who hooked busybox up with the SFLC to start legal enforcement of the GPL in the first place. Tim has nothing to do with it (other than writing the first pass of the "id" command implementation, which has since been replaced).
But thanks for trying to FUD an open source project. We people who actually write code really appreciate the efforts of those like yourself who don't to spread Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt about our efforts.
