That's *exactly* the problem.  If Dan Bernstein gets hit by a bus
(God forbid) we'd be stuck with software no one could use under
his current license (that is, unless his estate had the sense to 
do something with it).  Heck, if he went on vacation without 
connectivity and a security hole were found, we can't fix it.  

His license is simply unacceptable in the free software world.
