While doing a sweep through the FreeBSD code tree, I found yet
variant of the BSD license which I have dubbed BSD-1-Clause
Re-license it under the BSD LIcense and don't look back. We really
need to move to just one BSD/MIT license (actually Apache-2.0
but baby steps), and for any software that has a compatible license,
re-license it under that license, and tell the original author
that's necessary in order for it to be distributed. It will preserve
freedom and reduce license evaluation cost. Some companies really <b

license they want to use. Reducing the number of licenses they have
to look at will save them money, and increase their use. More
importantly it will increase their reliance on open source software.
Let's be clear here: we want people to acquire freedom, we want
people to enjoy freedom, and we want people to advance freedom.
Having multiple nearly identical licenses hinders that goal.
