So if someone emails me and dozens (hundreds?) of others a large
unsolicited binary file, we shouldn't challenge that in public in
pretty strong terms? That seems nuts.

Perhaps, but I feel *how* they created the PDF (using non-free
software to make an apparently non-standard file) and what they did
with it (emailing it unsolicited to the list) might tell you something
about how they would approach Koha support. LibLime might not care
about keeping this user in the free software world, but I do!
If someone wants on-site support, then it's going to limit the
options, but I suspect BibLibre and Calyx as well as TTLLP are happy
to accept international enquiries with remote support in general, so
it puts my nose out a bit when a company not seen here recently uses
someone not liking LibLime's prices as an excuse to mailbomb the list.
Limes are not the only fruit.
Or would you rather LinuxBox had work instead of koha-devel members
for some reason?
