still, apart from being wrong i think that you're right, using the term
GPL to refer to something that is not the GNU GPL can't be right,
especially if the licence in question is different in aim and purpose.
or is the intention to enforce that derived work be GPL'd as well? in that
case maybe it does make some sense, confusing as it is.

i didn't have a good look at the licence though, not being a lawyer i'm
happy with any old BSD.. but i like the idea.
