YES apparently has "Tragna Maction" which is clearly a copy of it (I am assuming they are licensing the technology for Lib/Gnu/Mervin). Also, I'm not sold on the recent return of the Asym sidecut tech... that was popular back in the early-'90s and Mervin is trying to make it fashionable again like Bellbottoms... I'm not convinced.

That being said, two of my friends have Gnu Park Pickles and they like them.
