    True, but it's up to T.C. to decide and he hasn't spoken about
    that yet. Perhaps he'll want to open it up more than that
    (e.g. LGPL), like Steve suggested.

    In any case, it would be nice to know in advance if it's a
    non-standard license so we can make sure it is really free
    software and GPL-compatible (this second point is non always a
    given, and there's lots of GPL'ed software out there that could
    be ported to XForms).
