Any reason not to consider it covered by 'Can Works Placed In The Public Domain Be Included
In Apache Products?' ?

Weak and horrible as the license text is, it seems fair to consider it a 'public domain' style
license.

One such library is jquery.times [1], which is released under the WTFPL [2], which we'd like
to continue using. I suppose that we could perform an end run around this issue and merely
re-license the software as that appears to be explicitly permitted, but that seems a bit squirrely.
