Correct: opt-out.

Since this code is under ALv2, we can import it to the ASF under that
license. We have always done stuff like this, including other permissive

But this isn't simply importing a library, this is saying "the ASF is now
the primary locus of development for >this< code." And that's where people
can say, "woah. I hate you guys. don't develop my code there", and so we
nuke it.

SGA/iCLA is to give us rights that we otherwise wouldn't have (ie. the code
was under a different license).
