I agree it's futile. The possibility I suggested was dual license with
GPL always applying and BSD-like conditions provided that the code is
used only in NUT-compliant ways, but it's difficult to enforce and
generally lame and annoying.

So my vote is for full MIT/BSD license or even something like
dlmalloc's license.
