sorry, i should have mentioned the explicit one i had in mind

CC-BY-SA-3.0 is pretty common in the open source world for documentation ... 
the incompatibility question would come up when mixing documentation with 
different licenses which i dont think is an issue in the nano project ?  
documentation in nano is generated on the fly by people, not copy & pasted 
from other documentation ...

when i hit this point of "all this licensing talk is getting out of hand", i 
just dump stuff into public domain ;)
