If memory serves, we approved the ISC license as a "legacy", because  
there was a large body of existing code widely used by the community.   
It sounds like MirOS is a *new* license, only used in code copyrighted  
by you, so the "legacy" issue doesn't apply.

Is that correct, or am I missing something?
