Who said that was OSI certified? It seems unlikely and counterintuitive
to me, and it's not listed in OSI's current Approved Licenses list.
It looks like a really cool package, but I think it's only semi-free.
The OSI does worry about export restrictions as license conditions; that
was a problem with the original Apple Public Source License. There is
still some controversy about that license, but the OSI got Apple to remove
the export-restriction language from the license entirely.
