So the issue is not the GPL, but the fact that I am not willing to be 
assimilated by the Apache collective.

I offered to support and join a collective effort to integrate an older 
version of Jisp into Apache.

Now, granted, I'm not even certain you have any reason to be using Jisp 
in the first place; it seems that you have many alternatives that would 
suit your purposes. However, if you *do* decide you want to "fork" Jisp 
from the 2.x codebase, I'd be more than happy to help out.

How, exactly, am I being unreasonable?
