Military usage of FOSS

Sergey, while the thought of software I'm writing being potentially used in military applications to kill others is not pleasant, before you propose a license change to ban military use, have you considered how much they've given back to open source software? Will you be giving up all software that was funded by various national Defense Departments? Start by dropping TCP/IP from your life and let us know how it goes from there.
