Last time I checked (about a year ago) the authors were still
considering making MuPAD GPL.  They want MuPAD to be used as much as
possible by as many people as possible.  They were concerned that the
GPL might actually hurt Mu-Pad's distribution and acceptance.
Perhaps, some of us should write to then again as ask them to
reconsider the GPL, with a convincing argument.
