Yay, another thread on software licensing.

By the way Fuzzy, just release your software with your own
licensing scheme. If you don't like any of the available OSI
licenses then don't use them, as simple as that.

On one hand "OSI approved"  means very little on the other
people do not completely understand these licenses anyway,
the long, recurrent GPL related threads demonstrate that.
