License explosion

Straight from the guru Eric Raymond:

"Quite honestly, my hope is that if we piss off everybody at once we won't piss everybody off so much that they leave, I think it will eventually work out because everybody involved with the problem realizes a common material explosion of different licenses isn't in anyone's interests"

Open source licensing explosion is a major issue. We created this license browser just for fun and get to some sanity around the legalese around it. Hopefully industry participants will see reason and cut this list down to the manageable number.

Expect to see more such announcements when all penguin lovers get together at OSBC.
