:I don't see a problem in that.
:In any case I think we should always focus first on the technical parts
:and maybe later on the license issues.  So if something is brilliant but
:has a strange license, we shouldn't shoot it down because of the license
:but first comment on the technical content.  After that we can issue
:possible legal concerns.

    Yes, I agree.  Just worry about the technical aspects for now.  If
    it's technically good code one can always negotiate with the author
    to adjust the license.  We're using Robin's random number generator,
    by the way, and its original license was a bit weird too, but then
    changed to something compatible.

    Generally speaking I am against incorporating code with odd licenses
    in it, simply because they are not realistically effective in their

    Also keep in mind that the original submission was made way back
    in June.
