I want to ++ this, because it will get ignored. Aaron: we really encourage
you to work on j2k, but we also encourage you to do so with a more liberal
license (e.g. GPL, or possibly even LGPL) for the final product. AGPL is a
bloody pain. Why do you want AGPL so much? Did the so-called loophole hurt
you personally in some way? Or is this all theoretical?
