I am very sorry for all this misunderstanding.
First of all, the Non-profit OSL is an open-source license. And obviously
it is the software collection which is licensed under it, not the
individual packages which all remain under their own license/copyright (so
the only restriction is that any "derived work" would be under Non-profit
OSL : but software created using Python(x,y) is absolutely NOT a "derived
work" - on the contrary, another software based on Python(x,y) would be a
"derived work").

Anyway, I try to keep an open mind, and I have no interest in explaining
or defending this license in particular. So, as I posted earlier, I can
switch to OSL v3 if this remains ambiguous to a lot of people.
