Personally, I think so. Does anyone have any good arguments for
something more restrictive?

If we do use a license, I would recommend a BSD-like one. It has the
benefits of being unrestrictive, simple (IMHO very important) and

On the other hand, I can't really see that it gives us anything
compared to simply making SAX2 PD, which is even less restrictive,
even simpler and still GPL-compatible as far as I can see.
