YA way to look at it:

While in one way, we are going to provide a big site that hosts lots of
different projects, in another way, the centralization indicates
something---that it might be useful to look at the projects as a whole,
and see if they are useful together.

If we allow GPL-incompatible software, we will be creating a virtual
minefield for those who might comb this site to find components to use

I believe this "" (for lack of any other a working title)
should be a site where hackers know they can grab components and combine
them together in useful ways without licensing compatibility worries.
