Now I will post the license I developed for my own work
by myself, after I found a name for it:
 OWL Release 1
the Open Work License
because it doesn't just cope code but also docu and my

I'll give it here without comment first, just plz have
a look onto it and - if you can spend some more minutes
- discuss with me.
(The last line is a CRC, the file is exactly 2kB, and
 the semicolones (yes I can latin) are for NASM. I put
 it into file LICENSE or - if I just have one source
 file in (my most used) assembly, at top of it).

Well, here it is.

PS: Don't CC: me as I am on the list at the moment.
PPS: I am German, so excuse my bad English plz.
