Agree. Its more about making a good interface to licensing :) And, tis
open source, right :)

Of course, seems that public interest of this software is ramping up, so
it will keep improving through CC and public efforts...CC is committed
to getting it into OLPC and we are super eager to get it into KDE and
GNOME so it will keep getting love :)

Yes, moving the GUI code to KDE sounds like a good idea...the liblicense
code would be good to stay where its at and have it as a dependency, but
the nice dolphin-friendly interface in KDE sounds like a good thing :)
Let's go for it! And, this is super super exciting and look forward to
more of this love...now, would be great to get the same uptake in
Gnome...any liblicense gnome lovers out there with commit access?

Cheers to Scott and Jason for rocking out this code...its good to see
uptake happening from the hard working summer!
