Backhand was created to level the playing field in a world full of commercial
solutions. It is our intention that this project be kept open source and that
all commercial spin-offs contribute their modifications back into the public
source tree. It is not our intent that one will take this software and
attempt to modify it for profit through distribution. We realize that the
