Whee, the licenses again. I've hacked the programming contest wiki 
page to take out the GPL stuff and to put in the OSI stuff.

The actual people organizing the contest will have to adjust this with
proper text and URLs to the right places (OSI, FSF), but at least this
will stop people from posting about this to the list again. ;)

Btw, the prizes; who's going to pay for them? I'm wary of promising
prizes if we don't have a proper budget yet. :)
