[Flac-dev] Licensing, Mozilla style

The MPL/LGPL(/GPL) idea seems great.  People can do whatever they want to
the code so long as they tell you what they did (MPL).  Or, they can
accept LGPL (and/or GPL).

That way, they can statically link your code into an embedded device so
long as they throw a few diffs your way.  The only thing left to do is
check with contributors.  (It seems to me the GPL option is unnecessary;
maybe you'd like the reference de/encoder (flac) under GPL, however.)

Hope this helps.
