I think he has that. Maybe he just needs to list them. But this
doesn't change the license on the code at all really, so its actually
not like a re-license where you need approval.

But in any case I personally don't care about this interface being
used if the alternative is they do it themselves. I'm still not going
to debug things with a binary module taint.
