But that's just the problem--as far as I know, there's simply no way I can
release a work under any license (permissive, copyleft or otherwise) to
guarantee that you won't be bitten a few decades down the line.  The only
way you can "plan accordingly", as far as I know, is to avoid reusing other
people's code entirely.
