[seul-edu] Proposed free syllabus license?

The Utah Attorney General's office blanched at the GFDL... (can't blame 'em;
I only understand half of it myself.)

However, I'm crafting a compromise which will still allow free distribution
and modification - I desperately need comments and opinions here (and
possibly any additions that I may have missed:)
