Relicensing under the New BSD License.  I cannot see anything one
could do under the BSD license that one could not do under the DOC
license.  No one who contributed to the DOC project would be surprised
by any actions taken by a BSD licensee.  There is case law which
allows a change of license if there are no changes in permission.
