    Actually, *YOU* probably own the house. What the bank has is a mortgage -
    a promise by you that if you don't pay them, they *then* get to own the house.
    Most banks try VERY hard to avoid actually owning houses.

    This is actually somewhat germane, as it reflects back on the "GPL the
    source after N units have been sold" business model, and code escrow, and
    related thigns...
