Many businesses prefer not to use GPL software, and I believe that if
Python itself had been GPL'ed it would not have become the success it
is now.  None of the major OS languages (Perl, Python, Tcl) are GPL.

But it's up to you, and I know there are dissenting opinions, and I
don't want this debate here turning into a flamewar, so I'll leave the
choice of license up to you, the author.
