Cheers dude! Your comments gave me a hearty laugh at the end of an irritating week.

And I'm sick of people taking any comment I make that smells mildly
critical as a personal insult, upon which I have to apologize and
explain my intentions so farging careful so as to not step on any more
toes. So I won't do that this time, I've had my quotum for today (not
on this list).

First of all I'm not bashing GPL, in fact I'm immensely thankful for
its existence and what it represents. I have no interest in bashing
any open source license or undermining any open source development

Second, I thought there perhaps just might be some legal issues for
the authors of luaproc when they announced having changed from a GPL
to MIT license. I guessed there was probably no reason to worry,
nevertheless I was trying to be helpful and put my concern about this
on the table, by simply asking. I figured that would be preferable to
waiting for some legal eagle to take advantage of a possible
oversight, which is all to easily made.

If that's too much for you to take, then tough MIT, bub.

And FAQ you too.
