See also a previous thread on the issue, showing the difficulty to  
find a suitable license with code copyrighted to Norman Walsh, Sun  
(now Oracle), and Mark Logic.

Also, I've always wondered the real nature of licensing issues with  
Saxon, which is under MPL, a license known to be incompatible with  
GPL. Saxon's APIs are used all over the place, and Calabash provides  
Saxon extensions (e.g. for XProc-defined XPath functions)... IANAL but  
licenses issues are a big pain in the ***.

my 2 useless cents,
Romain.
