One more consideration: some people may compare the "scariness" of the
Python license against, say, the Tcl license - and choose accordingly.
It's not even about content: seeing that new license, or the Perl
licenses for that matter, it sends out a strong message IMO: you are
entering the world of lawyers.  Proceed with caution.  Guard dogs.
