That's the thing, though.. it doesn't really work unless it is an all
or nothing thing. Either we have to get the legal copyright of
everything up-front in order to protect it if necessary, or we have to
round up the authors and rightful copyright owners when that time comes.
I'm inclined to say "screw it" and just hope Portage is never ripped
off.. I've had too many people voice opinions against any kind of
copyright assignment despite the fact that it would be in their best
interest. It is their development time and efforts at stake here. If
we offer to help protect that and they don't want it, we shouldn't force
it on them.
