Yeah, but it's a bit pointless now: the thing which used to be gs-afpl
has been GPLed for a few releases now, and gs-esp is merging with it
(which is all to the good because there are only a few things that
gs-esp does better than upstream GS: it's a fork *nobody* really wanted,
including the forker).

Aiming for 10^10.
