Its not really a matter of not wanting to, just the current license
headers make posting it publicly dicey and there is also the issue of
where to put it.  I am assuming that until the grant is executed
~psteitz is not OK.

Agreed.  There is no intention to discriminate or limit in any way.

What have others done to workaround the bootstrapping problem for code
that is currently internally licensed / restricted distribution before
the proposal is accepted and a grant can be executed?
