Just out of curiousity, would "core" accept code from others with
the same license?  If I were to submit my EISA ethernet card driver,
which is basically two files, would it go into the tree with my
copyright and license?  So I would be getting "credit" in advertising,
etc for a rather simple contribution.  Or, perhaps, someone would
undertake to re-write my contribution so it became "unencumbered" by
such a license?

I don't mean to beat the horse into glue, but I just don't see
how such a license is "better" or improved on the BSD license.
Regardless, I have barely contributed zilch, so I have no room
to talk.
