Maybe I am a bit stupid, but it only guarantees that the copyright
notice stays. I might have a problem with the word 'sublicense'. Does
this word mean that:

- you can use the same license
- you can use any license
- you can use any license which is no more restrictive than the original
one (is 'You have to put this copyright notice a restriction or not ?)
- you can use any license which is no less restrictive than the orginial

It makes no sense to me.
