Luke, could you offer some insight into affixing the Apache License v2.0
to this code base?  Only ALv2 code is released by the foundation.

LGPL/MPL cannot be relicensed into any non-copyleft license schema without
relicensing (including multiple licensing) by the copyright holders.

Were all contributions to OpenOffice.org under copyright assignment (via
employment or specific copyright assignment agreement)?  How many other
independent copyright holders would have to assent to the license change?
How much non-assenting code would have to be eliminated and potentially
replaced?

Yours,

Bill
