As for Open Source and OpenMUD, does it seem to anyone else that that suggests
the GPL (where derivative works must also be Open Source/GPL?)  It seemed like
the consensus was to develop a no-strings-attached MUD for whatever use -
including commercial binary-only distribution eventually.  Either that, or
some other license (contributors only, credit-me, etc...) but not GPL?  (Though
I like GPL and think it is a nice license for many things).
