hm, does the gpl require the distributor of a derived work to give licence
to all applicable patents they own? i think that's a nice feature. the legal
file requirement is potentially problematic (since it forces a particular
name) but i don't think it makes a difference. btw, this licence looks an
awful lot like another one we looked at a while ago, which one was it and
what did we decide about that one?
