The proposal talks about using it, and that's enough to trigger the
AGPL.  This is a *very bad* thing IMO.  For example, $dayjob would
require that we work around this in our environment (i.e.: not deploy
it).

Please please please don't bring in an AGPL package.  This isn't an ASF
"category X" issue, since we are talking about usage.  It's actually a
larger issue for users though.  Many legal departments would consider
the use of software with that license to trigger the requirement for
that organization to publish the source.
