The issue with hosting at Apache, of course, is that nothing more restrictive
than the Apache License (BSD-style) could be applied.  Fortunately, the list
of authors is rather short, in terms of appealing to them for a grant under
the Apache License.

Yet and still, there is the minor issue that NTLM violates RFC2616, and as
such you might find resistance here :)
