And license. Unless there's a license attached to the code, it can't be
used for *anything*.
Yes, it's annoyingly bureaucratic, but if you're in any kind of
commercial environment getting this sort of thing right is utterly
mandatory. I've seen and had to pass up on all sorts of useful bits of
code that I wanted to use, simply because they had no license.

I agree completely. Signing up for stuff is a pain in the arse.
That said, if it's *absolutely* necessary to keep track of people for
accountability reasons, OpenID is your friend. Most people already have
an account with an OpenID provider (Google, Yahoo, LiveJournal...); plus
it makes the implementation easier.
