Sometimes the public domain makes the most sense -- it's a leap of
faith (or, at least, generosity), in that you're allowed for the
chance that someone else might make a lot of money from your work
without giving you any.  Like IBTWSH, SAX is and will remain in the
public domain (not GPL'd, BSD'd, or anything like that).

All the best,
