Apache 2 is the FSF's current recommendation for a permissive license. 
Would this be acceptable, or would its mention of patents clash with BY?

Out of interest, why zlib rather than MIT, which was the FSF's previous 
recommendation iirc? Zlib's no-misrepresentation clause seems less 
useful than MIT's waiver of warranties, although more in-keeping with 
BY's moral rights handling.
