I think that it's possible to design a licensing exception that would

- For non-ModSecurity-related modules, allow any open source licence.
We would either call for any OSI-certified licence, or explicitly
list every licence allowed.
- Changes to ModSecurity, or modules that work with ModSecurity to
change or extend its functionality, would remain covered under GPLv2.
I think you want to do what MySQL has done. They have similar issues.
You are right -- it looks like exactly what we need.
