Did you forget about my replies?
I've already explained why I think that the PHP License (version 3.01)
is non-free:

 - when the license is applied to PHP itself (or to other software
   provided by the PHP Group), the only problematic clause is #4.

 - when the license is applied to anything else, a bunch of additional
   issues come up


Please don't neglect these issues. I think fixing this license is very
important.
