Yep.  Nor am I even saying the GPL might not be appropriate for these 
things.  Just suggesting that the reason for the JOSL as opposed to 
saying 'we might as well put all JSF software under GPL' might be that 
the GPL can be restrictive, and sometimes you want to do things like 
seed the server market as part of the evil plan to take over the IM 
world, bwahahaha.... or whatever. :)
