 Something I had overlooked: I gather from re-reading Sebastian's
initial post that LBNL is continuing to use this license. If so, why
is it appropriate for "Legacy" approval?  I had the sense that Legacy
Approval was for licenses that were no longer in active use but for
which OSI approval was for whatever reason considered desirable.
