Slightly off-topic,
         But if I were to write a Java library, and I wanted to ensure that 
mods to the library must be distributed, but that any application that 
makes use of it (through dynamic or static linking) would not, which 
license would I want to use?
         This issue is going to come up for me pretty soon, and playing 
license bingo is very frustrating. Is there a comprehensive resource for 
this stuff (and relevant to Java, especially) out there that someone could 
point me to?
