To the extent that the lack of consideration is a real problem at all,
this might help.
It might also hurt, though: If swapping signed slips of paper were to
become a widespread *custom* in the free-software community, some
courts might become more likely to agree to the "no consideration ergo
no binding promise" argument in the case of software for which such
slips have *not* been exchanged.
I'd say this is a case where no fix should be attempted until actual
breakage has occured.
