Okay.  The Vanilla Minecraft server is a lost cause, Markus says its
closed source and they are not interested.  He does say that Bukkit is a
derivative of their intellectual property and that they have worked out
a license deal.  Seen as the LGPL notice is new, I would assume that is
the license deal, but I will check with the Bukkit owner.
