Yes, sorry. I weant to send an email for that but delayed way too much.

As I already said privately, I'm fine with BSD-2-clause. But if Daniel is 
against that basically removes support for ARM architecture. Yes there would 
be some private fork but I think most of them would not add much (I might be 
wrong). If a fork adds a lot of code it has an interest to get merged. 
However, tcc is not fast moving so I might be wrong in this specific case.
