BitTorrent 4.0.1 - BitTorrent Open Source License

BitTorrent 4.0.1 changed the license from it's old version, 3.4.2 to
the BitTorrent Open Source License available at
http://www.bittorrent.com/license/.  The license he uses is included
below.  Is there a consensus between any of the debian-legal folks on
whether this license is DFSG-free?  

There was some discussion of this license before[1], but there wasn't
any real consensus of whether it is DFSG-free or not.  There seemed to
be some issue with the "keep code available 12 months", and the choice
of venue. If it is not, bugs will most likely need to be filed against
jabber packages because this license is based on the Jabber Open Souce
License and, AFAICT, the same objected to sections exist in that
