No, but it would certain close the gap even more.
Wildly Off-Topic: I should note that I think if upstart did not have the
CLA that it does, the rest of the FOSS world might have just improved
it, and systemd might never have shown up. I suspect that the fate of
bzr might be similar.
These should serve as a cautionary tale for for-profit companies
requiring CLAs. [Or everyone, even.]
