I think there is a distinction to be made between RE-licencing and the
"original" license.  Given that we are possibly in an imminent change
of the license, it is conceivable that a patch made now might not
come out under a BSD license (really would depend on how the switchover
would occur).  Just as some people won't contribute to anything BUT *gpled
projects, it's not unreasonable for other to have the opposite position.
