I have read carefully the discussion about licensing issues (Python
Equations thread) and, personally, I am in favor of BSD, too. But I
develop the code for my department and here things become more
complicated...

My colleagues do not understand the open source / free software license
issues much, so after my brief introduction we quickly agreed on GPL - I
wanted to make the release as soon as possible. IMHO more such
reactions/opinions (together with cooperation offers :)) could flip
their opinion.

cheers,
