"Oracle America" is the full name of the entity that granted us the code.
They may not have been able to get the same tax deduction donating to a
foreign entity. The tax deduction would be *considerable* given the value of
the OOo brand.

Personally, I think Oracle's choice had more to do with IBM's
recommendation, than taxes.
