Cut-down BSD, to the point of being copyright-only with no restrictions at all - but using the same wording as the BSD licenses do for the remaining portion of it. That is: <Copyright statements here> Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification, are permitted. <Warranty disclaimer here> To me, this looks more obviously compatible with other Open Source licenses than the usual N-clause BSD licenses are.
