How much effort would it be to relicense by authors' permissions?  I
have written permission from Matthew Barnson to relicense anything
written by him as I see fit (obtained the last time we were discussing
relicensing it, that we never got around to doing) and he contributed a
major portion of the original docs.  You, Vlad, Travis, and Colin are
probably the other major contributors (though I haven't looked, I'm just
pulling names out of the air).  How may contributors would we have to
get permission from to do the relicense the old-fashioned way? :)
