Elias, speaking for myself, I see nothing within megaparsecs of
OSD-infringement about this simple permissive licence.

However (separately from your question), why not a standard permissive

seem a bit colder and less folksy, but among other things you really
should consider the merits of the MIT licence (and similar ones such as
revised BSD) protecting you from warranty claims.

Cheers,                           "This is Unix.  Stop acting so helpless."
