Well, I remember some time ago I got critizised on this list for my choice
of license. But, it was because I decided to put the runtime libraries for
Zombie under GPL and not LGPL. At that time nobody said a word about X-,
Artistic- or BSD-licenses. Changing the license in every file should
basically be a big 'find' with a little bit of 'sed' thrown in, but
currently I have more important things to do, such as try to figure out
what 'autoconf' really does... :-)
