another license that is compatible with the existing one. Now, the BSD
is slightly stronger than MIT in the sense that it has the "No
So, maybe one idea is to clearly state that Moose, Mondrian, SmallDude
and other pieces were BSD until 2010 and MIT since then (similar to
the current situation of Pharo).
