I'd like to caution you against attributing motives to other's actions 
or inactions.  I'm not making this suggestion with any official Apache 
hat on, but based on my experience that such statements rarely lead to 
productive consequences.

As for me, I would like to observe that we have the public statements 
made by the FSF, including the text of the GPL license.  We have the 
knowledge that this issue has been around for a long time and has never 
been resolved.  And we know that that people like Brian have invested a 
fair amount of time on this topic.

What I conclude from this is that it would be both difficult and 
unlikely for a successful resolution of this issue.  Despite the fact 
that quite a number of us (myself included) would love to see this resolved.
