Nope, not AFAIK...

Maybe from your point of view, from mine (and don't take it personally, 
please, it's just an example) there's no difference between Jeff Turner 
of the Cocoon fame and Mark Matthews of the MySQL-MM JDBC driver...

I had some chats in the past with Mark, and he understood our vision and 
why whe used the BSD/ASL instead of GPL/LGPL, but look at how version 
3.0 of his codebase is now distributed! :-)

IIRC (long time have passed) at that time we were even "in the talks" 
for bringing the driver under Jakarta...
