Thanks Josh and Bruce.  I've read the license again too now, and
examined its diff against RC2, and completely concur: this is an open
source license and should be approved.

Agree with Bruce that the clause that opens the door to license
proliferation is not in itself grounds for rejection.  (We should of
course still do everything we can to stop proliferation!)

Since Luis's RC3 post has been on this list for a while, and no one has
found objections, I'll transmit our recommendation to the Board that OSI
approve it, in a separate mail.
