Remove the heaping pile of shit known as the GPL and replace with...
A simpler license that demands source code be given away, very similar to
a BSD license but restricted in the sense that code is to be shipped with binaries.
In other words it's a restricted BSD license.
That's right Dick Stallman, your license is a restricted license not a free one.
