The PSF will have to agree on the contribution docs first,
though. Since there's no discussion on the PSF docs discussion
list, I suppose everybody is happy with them :-) 

BTW, I was referring to the other codecs in the python-codecs
project on SF. Most of those are encumbered by the GPL and thus
unusable in non-GPL projects.

Tamito has switched to a BSD-license after some private 
discussions about this, which is goodness :-)
