I realize that.  However, I think you have done about 80% of the work to
kick off the license approval process (see http://opensource.org/approval
for details), and should just go ahead with what you've got.  If you
don't do it, no one else is likely to.

Arise, you prisoners of Windows / Arise, you slaves of Redmond, Wash,
The day and hour soon are coming / When all the IT folks say "Gosh!"
It isn't from a clever lawsuit / That Windowsland will finally fall,
But thousands writing open source code / Like mice who nibble through a wall.
