Considering that FFTW also sells licenses for non-GPL use, I tend to
prefer the FFTW licensing over MKL. Note that GPL doesn't mean
non-commercial. When RedHat sells a Linux CD, it's commercial although
there's lots of GPL software included. In any case, since there's
probably people who want MKL, I'll probably merge that too after I can
have a look at it.
