Yes, that is true for the examples like the Blog - which we just
received from an user some days ago, the simpler examples however work

free to use whatever you like.

Thank you very much for taking the time and trying it, Ramaze has been
in development for around 8 months now without much exposure, so it's
good to see that our efforts might also be useful for other people.
