Subject: Re: License survey

I'd like to see musl released under a BSD or MIT license.  It's the only
way that musl can really stay free -- you've described the flaws in the
LGPL already.  The GPL creates a legal morass of restrictions and subtle
points of contention, which is what comes of wielding copyright law like
a club.  Obviously it's your decision, but I hope nobody here is under
the delusion that the GPL (and its descendants) represents software
freedom.  It boils down to "do what you will" vesus "do what I say," and
it's up to you if you want to reserve that right.
