Aaron,

I'm think you can license your plugin for Moodle under whatever license you 
want, as long as it wasn't an extension of existing Moodle code.

I've cc'd the legal list to verify this is correct.

Legal list - a little more background:  VCL is a cloud provisioning system.  
It has an XMLRPC API that allows other systems to interact with it.  Aaron 
Coburn has written a plugin for Moodle that allows a user to make a 
reservation in VCL via a Moodle site.  He would like to contribute this plugin 
to the VCL project.

Thanks,
Josh
