Hey, if YOU take a bunch of not-very-conformant and old code
and rework it substantially to conform to all then-current
standards, speeding it up and shrinking it considerably, then
you'd get to make the choice of license on your changes too.

Please stop spreading FUD by the way:  the license in question
has never been literally "GPL".  Though now that FSF has the
copyright on my updates, ClasspathX could choose that one.

Hmm, the last time I looked at SAXON it included my version,
so it couldn't legally be relicensed under MPL.
