Please choose a well known licence, e.g. one of
http://creativecommons.org/licenses/ -- I'm not sure a "code" license
like GPL or BSD makes much sense in the context of a generated binary

I would love people to use something like CC BY. Using an off-the-wall
or modified license means it's very hard for the data to get into
distros like Fedora and Debian and pretty much impossible to get into
products like RHEL.
