But see, that is not *clipart*, is a cartoon, a complete composition
including some witty text (nice one, BTW).
It would be clipart if you would have submitted only the giraffe (no
tree, no rope, no text balloon) and I believe you would be more
comfortable with PD for that.

Sure, we don't want to force anybody. People are free to contribute what
and when they like. I also create a lot of stuff with other licenses and
publish it on other locations.

But CC-NC is *not free*, which is against the goals of this library.
