Slightly off-topic, but a little aside

The most awesome part of the WordPress copyright situation: that the
copyright holders are us -- each and every one of us that has
contributed code to WordPress. If Matt grew two horns and wanted to make
WordPress proprietary, he would have to get written permission from
every single person who has ever contributed code _ever_ to WordPress.
(Good luck with that. :-D)
