Well, there *is* a solution.  Simply sit down and spend a couple thousand
man-hours writing a new mudserver from scratch.  Then you can make up whatever
sort of license your heart desires.

Five people spent an INCREDIBLE amount of time developing Diku long before
Jeremy spent even more time turning into the best freely availible MUD
software availible.  Why should you (or anyone else, for that matter)
derive any profit from it?  They certainly havn't, as far as I can tell.
(Hey Jer, when do I get to come visit you at Stately Elson Manor?)
