I do not propose such thing. BSD-licensed software can be changed to
GPL'ed. There are othe implications, of course. But it is still free and
can be copylefted.

I am looking for the best way to spend my time (and others' time) where
the social benefit would be the greatest with the investment of
learning, investigation and effort. I am not sure if I am prepared yet
