Which I guess is fine, for stuff that you create. But you can't, say,
take something that is already published under one licence, change it,
and then place that something somewhere where it would be under another,
incompatible licence. So it doesn't really help you when it comes to
taking wikipedia stuff and putting it onto the Codex.
