There are already several instances of license flamewars in lua-l's

stated was under consideration. Several standard licenses are available
which have equivalent meaning to Lua's current license. One benefit of
using a standard license is to answer the question of GPL compatibility.

lhf informs me that they are looking into the GPL compatibility question.
