Actually, that's not true. I had not budged _yet_. In the fullness
of time (after a bit more discussion; not a bit more of core telling
me what was or was not acceptable to them on a given day), in all
likelyhood I would have.
I wasn't given any warning before 'core' started removing code covered
by my new license from the source tree, so there was no hope of any
'last minute' solution.
