Call me the anarchist of the pack, but what are other organizations doing, like 
*BSD, debian, or even other open-sourced projects as far as copyrights go?  Why 
not just keep it simple and adopt the mechanism used by the upstream linux 
kernel team (which based on gregkh's description, seems to fit us the best, imho).

As it currently stands, it seems every idea proposed so far has a flaw or 
flaw(s) that prohibits, limits, excludes, or annoys one or more of our devs. 
Surely this situtation, or a variant, has been tackled before, so I'm sure 
somewhere out there, there is something workable for us (possibly with minor 
modifications).
