And just to be clear, since "Harmony" was invoked as the reason for this 
- it was an element of discussion trying to work around license issues, 
the suggestion by an individual was that contributors also dual license 
contributions they are making to apache under MIT (hosted somewhere 
else) for outside projects to use.  We never (or certainly I never) 
suggested that Apache Harmony releases be under anything but the AL.
