Since the orig code is GPL, then when people submitted the patches,
the expectation is that they would also be GPL. As such, for us
to be able to fold in the code, we would need iCLAs from everyone
who submitted a patch allowing us to relicense their bits as AL instead
of GPL... similar to what we needed to do when SpamAssassin come on
