It should be ok, IMO. In general, it would be ideal if the customization process could be
automated as part of our build. However, if that's not practical, then we can include the
customized version in our svn. 

Dojo is dual licensed: BSD and Academic Free License 2.1. describes the licenses which the ASF
feels are similar to the Apache License 2.0.  BSD and AFL 3.0 are included in this list. Looking
at AFL 2.1, I don't see anything that would be objectionable. We can verify this on legal
discuss. If there is a problem with AFL 2.1, we can simply choose the BSD license.
