No need to be sorry :) Legal stuff has allways been a pain for me to
understand (and for most others too I presume, as there are currently
1903242342349895 lawyers around and they all have a job).

Anyhow, we'll go with the MIT license. At least it says nothing about
relicensing (like the GPL), which should make it possible for us to
relicense if necessary.

Thanks for the feedback Dave, Joel and Carl!
