This is to let you know that I approve of any licence change to a 
licence (or combination of licences), as you see fit, reasonably considered to 
be "free". For practical purposes, I'd prefer it if it were to be DFSG-free.

Please choose a licence that fits the rest of your documentation
licence best.

I'd gladly transfer my copyrights to the FSF. Let me know if you need any more 
information or clarification from me.
