Hi Lawrence,

I fear you have misinterpreted my weak attempt at humour (ie.
suggesting the GPLv3+) as a serious suggestion. :)  I apologise if
that got lost in translation and I will be more careful in future.

(For the avoidance of doubt, I was merely trying to suggest that Simon
should go with a well-known license that fits his firm's needs and
append some entirely-adjunct text as a purely optional request, making
it explicit that this does not change the terms of that license.)

Best wishes,
