Neither am I.

And  yes, I meant GPL and not GSL---Freudian slip or something.

Lastly, I personally think this whole license thing sucks and wish it would go 
away.  Stallman has confused this issue beyond a lawyer's recognition.

Lastly, I am sure everyone is assured that I am not going to sue anyone 
because they use my software.  All I am worried about is keeping someone from 
suing me because of some micro-coded release I neither knew about or could 
not understand.

MIT seems reasonable but a pox on GPL.  You have to get a seance with Clarance 
Darrow to figure that one out.  Stallman is a smart cookie but as far as I am 
concerned, he and GPL does nothing but impede open interchange of software.

The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
