Yeah. Ideally bits and pieces, as they are contributed to Harmony would
be licensed under the Apache license or even more liberal licenses, and
the work on fixing the license incompatibility between Apache license
(2) and GPL (2) would result in the legal harmonization allowing the
reuse of bits and chunks of Harmony in GPLd projects as well.
