    I like that license!! All the open source people around here seem to
    indicate that licenses like that don't work. But that is exactly the
    of license that I would LIKE to see. I have projects of my own that
    I would love to put out as open source, were it possible to see a way
    to having future income. (Even better would be a way of assigning
    "income shares" to contributors, on a percentage basis, so that all
    contributors received a share of any generated income.)
