I guess I did this once before but I don't think everyone replied; can
people confirm willingness to relicense their contributions under the
BSD-type license (appended), the GNU Lesser General Public License, and
"all future versions of the Academic Free License posted on and
certified by opensource.org"?
There's not much indication that a new AFL will happen soon, but I want
to go ahead and be prepared for the various eventualities, so we don't
have to have another one of these "everyone follow up on license change"
We need the BSD/LGPL approval so people can go ahead and ship dbus.
