It was thus said that the Great Lars Doelle once stated:

It seems as if the GPL is unpopular here, but that didn't stop me from
releasing my syslog replacement  under the GPL, with an exception:
NOTE! The author of this package grants an exemption of Section 5
and 6 of this license for any new or additional Lua scripts written
by you for use with this package. Only the C source code and the
Lua scripts provided in this package are covered under this license.
That said, go with that you are comfortable with. I'm comfortable with
the GPL so that's what I go with.
