I am debating whether to release the demo code I am writing under GPLv3+ or Apache V2. I love copyleft's protection of the commons, and I prefer to use it for my end user oriented stuff. However, for stuff to encourage people to adopt *standards* stuff, I tend to stick to more lax/permissive licenses since propagation of the ideas is more important than protecting the code itself.

@cwebber I'd love an LGPL but with exceptions for static as well as dynamic linking.
