To me, I want my name attached with the very file I edit. I don't
care if they reproduce the license in documentation, but I would like
mention of my name in that documentation.
In short, my wishes:
(1) Credit MUST remain in the source files,
(2) Credit MIGHT be given in documentation for non-profit
(3) Credit MUST be given in documentation for profit use.
(4) Noone can sue me over the code.
I might be willing to concede on (3) if I were reasonably certain TNF
were looking out for my interests with their standard licnse. As
things stand now I feel I need to look out for myself.
