Okay, here's another update.  We really need to get this done, so I've
decided to go w/ Daniel's suggestion that we extend the store license
for one year from the date of signing instead of the current end-of-2005
license that Daniel might not be able to sign until late May.  Feel free
to complain, and if there's a consensus that this isn't the best route
then we'll do something different.  I've also added the domain names and
a clause about the copyright assignment forms that are making this
effort so urgent.
