Has anyone ever actually talked to the authors of packages such as 
these to see if they'd be willing to contribute their code to Apache, 
or release a version of the code under Apache's license so that it 
could be included?  It's not like this is MS or anything.  They've 
already released it under one public license.  They'd probably be 
willing to release it under another if people asked nicely.
