Yes, we hate it, but we can't say that base64 is a kind of binary blobs
because it isn't as you can decode it at any time and get the real source
code and not a disassembled one. If we go to the court with this, can you
please tell me what is the difference between a code in ASCII characters,
Unicode and base64 encoded? Yes, MasterGate did something nasty, but I
don't think this is enough in order to call it GPL violation.
