Maybe there is no big problem here anymore: FreeCASE is GPL except for
that require a less restrictive license. Might Argo (or Argo+-) be
such a part? I like this GPL-unless construction.

The goals (Jason's research programme vs. tools for the noosphere) 
are also different. As long as we respect the differences I can see
a lot of possible benefits of working together.

Do you mean J-UML as in http://www.vtt.fi/tte/papers/j-uml  ?
To quote Linus : "Nice idea, show me the code."

Next steps? The supersimplified specs for prototype 0.0.0 
(or 0.0.3) still need to be met, IMHO.

Have fun,
