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.

Cheers!
