Since we had this debate the last time, a large amount of Open Source projects
have gone a lot stricter in this department and we are certainly not alone in
this stand-point. Some of them are BSD-style too.

It is not about what license we use. To me, it is about who does what in a
legal / copyright angle and that we are a real project with real people using
real names.
