Subject Re: 3-clause BSD License

2-clause and 3-clause are quite similar for this purpose as they
differ only in a clause about endorsement:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_licenses#2-clause_license_.28.22Simplified_BSD_License.22_or_.22FreeBSD_License.22.29

My interpretation of http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html is that
both are "authorized licenses".

The example at http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html also
supports this since it refers to 3-clause.
