In #2 of his proposed solution, Geir said he doesn't believe that
Derby qualifies as an implementation, and thus would not be affected
by the JSPA.

Geir also said that as far as the copyright claims in the spec
evaluation license were not of consequence for us.

"The Apache License is the only copyright license on the code for
downstream licensees.  Nothing else - Sun's weird theories about spec
copyright notwithstanding."
