    What attributes are people looking for in the license. I think one of the
    most important is that the software spread and be accepted widely.
    Especially if we are trying to create a defacto standard and to spread the
    word about boot strapping techniques and DKR. In that repect I don't think
    artistic license, ala perl, would suit our needs nor BSD or X style as
    they make forking easier. GPL while not denying forking makes it more
