No one is proposing that Lua goes GPL, neither the team nor the others.
We're all just concerned to ensure that Lua is as free as possible and that
it can be used with GPL software.

But I agree with you here:

Using a standard licence, even if it does not spell things out exactly as we
think it should, would give us all more time to focus on technical questions.
After all, we the team are neither native English speakers not lawyers, and
the subtle details of license texts are too much for us. I have the impression
that this is also true for many people here and everywhere.
