hummm... I know I want our stuff to be GPL but I'm not sure how appropriate
it would be to be an official GNU project at least at this point.  I just
checked www.gnu.org and it looks like mostly heavy duty fundamental
programming to me.  What we are more likely going to be doing is putting
their stuff together like lego blocks to build/glue together a useful
universal GPL'd school package.  

Thanks for clarifying this issue, Micah.
