to be given to the X11 tree in exchange for some other piece of code. A
DIB engine is no small piece of code and will not be developped by a
single individual but more by something like 10+ developpers.

To 'give' it to the X11 tree you have to have the agreement of all 10
developpers. Even if there is a 70% chance that each of them will agree
to relicense their code (which seems overly optimistic), there is only a
2.8% chance that all 10 will agree.

Then you have to hack and slash into the code to remove the
contributions of all those who oppose the exchange, and work on
replacing them. Urgh.
