When can we assume anything? 

We can assume that the spare time worker believes in the "spirit"? How
so? Maybe he/she just wants a new irc client and it took them 500
hours to write it. And just because I get paid for my work I don't
believe in the spirit? Or am I more likely not to? 

Either way you draw the line you are generalizing - and that is one
problem we are trying to overcome.
