Not "mine", at least, but Jargon File is only the third of 4 (or fourth
of 5 counting webster as double, due to different versions) of the

However, using 'own', which is a similar word (according to Webster's
entries), you say the same thing without the secondary prejudicial
meanings of proprietary.
