There's a lot more BSD-style licences waiting for your attention:
* The original UCB licence (2, 3 and 4 clauses)
* The MIT licence
* The X11 licence (without or with (XFree86 1.1) advertising clause)
* The ISC licence (preferred by OpenBSD)
* The MirOS Licence (designed to be simple text and EU-law safe too)
* The Apache(TM) licence 1.1
* The "historic permission clause"
* The X.net licence
* The zlib licence
* The PHP licence (which has problems regarding derivates, don't use)
* The Sleepycat licence

Of course I'm biased if I recommend the MirOS licence ;-) but if
you're going to chose that, MIT, UCB or maybe ISC (which has problems,
because of some unclear wording), chances are Alpine makes it into
the base system of a certain BSD operating system I develop on, espe-
cially since all of our developers quite like Pine a lot.
I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
